JT Brubaker will get the start. The relievers will include Yerry De Los Santos, Sean Poppen, Blake Weiman and Shea Spitzbarth.
Chad Kuhl will get the Opening Day assignment on Thursday.
Tony Wolters was released by the Pirates last night after losing out on the backup catching job. Not sure if he might re-sign with the club, which sometimes happens with veteran players who work out new deals as minor league players, but as of right now, he’s no longer with the club.
