Pirates | Gerrit Cole to start in minors

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole will open the 2013 season with Triple-A Indianapolis. "Our plan for Gerrit is to have him come to spring training and show us how strong his offseason was and then continue his growth and development," general manager Neal Huntington said. "When he shows us he's ready to maintain his delivery and unleash his four-pitch package with consistency, we'll bring him to the major leagues." SPs Kyle McPherson and Jeff Locke are candidates to earn a job in the starting rotation.
