Pirates Second Base Battle Shaping Up As Key Spring Storyline (+)

Published

Liover Peguero, Pittsburgh Pirates

When forecasting the lineup for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2024, manager Derek Shelton can fill in a few spots with sharpie.

Bryan Reynolds will man left field. He’ll be joined in the outfield by Jack Suwinski. On the left side of the infield, Gold Glover Ke’Bryan Hayes will be at the hot corner with Oneil Cruz to his left at shortstop as the latter is ready to return from his fractured left ankle. Rowdy Tellez and Connor Joe figure to share time at first base and Henry Davis will spend more time behind the plate in wake of Endy Rodriguez’s elbow surgery.

One spot that is still completely up for grabs is at second base. The Pirates have a handful of in-house candidates to fill the void, and what happens during spring training in the coming weeks is going to mean a whole heck of a lot.
