Marco Gonzales will make the start for the Pittsburgh Pirates when they face the New York Yankees in Tampa at 6:35 ET on Wednesday.

Gonzales is coming off of his best start of the Grapefruit League schedule against the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday. In that game, the left-hander allowed one run across five innings pitched and struck out four batters. Baltimore recorded just one hit against him.
