Pirates' Steven Brault expected to pitch five innings on Wednesday
Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that the plan is for starter Steven Brault to go five innings on Wednesday, according to Trib Live beat writer Rob Biertempfel.
Biertempfel also noted that Brault would be followed by young, reeling starter Tyler Glasnow in tonight's road matchup against the Milwaukee Brewers. With the Pirates out of the race, it's clear that they're focused on developing young pitching and seeing what they have to work with in the future.
With a 1-0 record, a 3.28 FIP and 37.5% groundball rate in 2 starts and 8 overall appearances this season, the left-hander is projected for 19.6 FanDuel points at $6,600 on tonight's slate.
