One quick pic from batting practice this morning in Bradenton …

That’s Walker in the cage.

UPDATE 10:13 a.m.: Catcher Rod Barajas and wife Stacie had their seventh child, daughter Starlette, last night in San Diego. Barajas is expected to rejoin the Pirates tomorrow.

12:22 p.m.: All kinds of talk this morning that the Pirates are trying to add pitching. Don’t ask names. Haven’t heard one. But it sounds imminent.

3:41: Brief chat with Joel Hanrahan just now, after another dominant outing …


He hasn’t allowed a hit yet, and he’s struck out three in six innings.
