Pirates | 1B, RF positions up in the air

Tue, 11 Mar 2014 09:02:52 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle continues to try and figure out the team's left field and first base positions this spring. 2B Michael Martinez, who is a switch hitter and can play second base and the outfield, is the only one who has distinguished himself in the game Monday, March 11. OFs Andrew Lambo, Jaff Decker, Chris Dickerson, Chris McGuiness and Travis Snider and 1B Travis Ishikawa are all in the mix. "We'll just keep giving them opportunities to play. We'll keep giving them at-bats and see where they take them," said Hurdle, who has begun to divide what he refers to as "separation" among the candidates. "But I'm not gonna seed them for you."
