PITCHERS (9)

Antonio Bastardo
Joe Blanton
Arquimedes Caminero
Gerrit Cole
Jared Hughes
Francisco Liriano
Mark Melancon
Joakim Soria
Tony Watson
Analysis: The Pirates once again carry an emergency starter in Francisco Liriano, who will only come into play if the game goes really long, or if something happens to Gerrit Cole early. Joe Blanton is a strong candidate for extended innings if the Pirates need that.
CATCHERS (3)

Francisco Cervelli
Elias Diaz
Chris Stewart
Analysis: No surprise here, as it was pretty obvious yesterday that Elias Diaz would be on the roster as the third catcher, allowing Chris Stewart to serve in a pinch hitting role.
INFIELDERS (8)

Pedro Alvarez
Pedro Florimon
Josh Harrison
Jordy Mercer
Michael Morse
Aramis Ramirez
Sean Rodriguez
Neil Walker
Analysis: Iím guessing the starters will be Alvarez, Walker, Mercer, and Harrison, which gives a pretty strong bench.
OUTFIELDERS (5)

Keon Broxton
Starling Marte
Andrew McCutchen
Gregory Polanco
Travis Snider
