Today, your Pittsburgh Pirates take on the Atlanta Braves in Lake Bueno Vista at 1:05PM.

Top Prospect, Tyler Glasnow, will once again take the bump for Pittsburgh this Spring. During the Black vs. Gold outing, Glasnow pitched two innings while giving up two runs. As mentioned, Glasnow appears to be set in making big contributions for this club later down the road, so getting him the proper preparation will go a long way. Pittsburgh is coming off of a 2-2 tie with the Twins and look to take the prospect filled Braves to the cleaners.

Atlanta’s is bringing their top lineup for this game and have Bud Norris taking the mound. The Braves are in a full rebuild process and feature many of the games up and coming prospects. This is what Spring Training is all about. Today will feature a prospect for the Pirates in Glasnow, but for the Braves we will likely get to see a lot of their future come into the game once the starters are replaced.  Dansby Swanson, Ozzie Albies, and Mallex Smith are the names to look out for in the home team dugout.

Even with some of the everyday players missing this game, it should still be a fun event to watch.  If you are attending the game, I’ll be in the lawn wearing the ol’ DiNardo jersey with my friend who’s a Braves fan.  Make sure to give him and his Sid Bream loving ass, hell!
