BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - Coming off their first playoff appearance in 21 years, the Pittsburgh Pirates were eager to start spring training.
Several players have been training regularly at the Pirate City complex since early January. When 36 pitchers and catchers held their first official workout on Thursday, a half-dozen position players were there, too.
The Pirates won 94 games last season and advanced to the NL division series, their first postseason berth since 1992. They were eliminated by the St. Louis Cardinals in the decisive Game 5.
Russell Martin says that despite all the Pirates accomplished last year, they were disappointed with how the season ended.
