BRADENTON, Fla. — Pedro Alvarez, the Pirates’ top draft pick last year, will make his first start of spring training today against the Braves.

Alvarez will replace designated hitter Eric Hinske, who was a late scratch with a bruised left ribcage. Hinske was injured Wednesday when he ran into the outfield wall during the game against the Phillies.
