Pirates | Jeff Locke more likely for relief

Between Pittsburgh Pirates SPs Jeff Locke and Kyle McPherson, who will both be starting rotation insurance heading into spring training, Locke is more likely to transition to a relief role if the team needs it at any point. Locke could become the second lefty in the bullpen along with RP Tony Watson. Locke gave up only one hit in 4 1/3 relief innings last year, and hitters typically have much more success the second time they see him in the same game.
