Kumar Rocker is a name all Pittsburgh Pirates’ fans have heard by now. For many, the Vanderbilt pitcher was a shoe-in to go in the top spot of the draft, regardless of who had the pick. I’m under the impression the Pirates will do that very thing, just as all the other 29 teams would do in their shoes.
SCORE: Tigers 0, Pirates 0 BOTTOM: In Spencer Torkelson's first at-bat, with two outs, he lined a two-strike fastball into the left-field corner. Before the 2020 draft's No. overall pick reached base, Parker Meadows and Riley Greene were retired.
The Pittsburgh Pirates announced the start times for all of its home games in the 2021 season. A big change with the start times is that during April, May, and September, home games will start at 6:35 p.m. minutes earlier than the usual 7:05 p.m.
