Pirates | Charlie Morton on normal throwing program

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 11:54:47 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton (hip) said he resumed his normal throwing program Dec. 1, and threw from a distance of 120 feet on consecutive days last week. "Everything's good," he said. "My arm feels great, my hip feels great. Now, it's about increasing my workload. The biggest challenge is going to be throwing off the mound, just because of the increased angle." Morton may decide to throw a bullpen session several days earlier than usual in order to ease into his spring training routine and hopes to be ready by Opening Day.

Pirates | Tony Sanchez sent home from winter ball

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 11:30:47 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates C Tony Sanchez was sent home early from the Dominican Winter League after playing in only 10 games. He had just three hits in 30 at-bats and made two throwing errors.
