Pittsburgh Pirates Starting Lineup 10/15/21 Pirates Lineup

61-101, 5th in NL Central

red-x Projected Proj

CIN 6 @ PIT 3

Final

Updated:

Over the last couple of seasons, Pittsburgh has had company at the bottom of the NL Central. With the addition of some big names down on the river in Cincinnati, the Pirates may find the going lonely in 2020. Pittsburgh has some nice feel-good players on their team, but they lost one of the key elements in the middle of their batting order. There are some talented young players in the Pirates' order that will be fun to watch mature.

However, in a tough division it could be hard to expect the Pirates to be competitive on a night-after-night basis. One reason they will experience more down moments than highlights is a starting rotation that doesn't appear to be imposing. The staff ace has fallen on some difficult times over the last couple seasons, and a rekindling of his performance could be a nice stopgap option to prevent long losing streaks. However, the bottom four of the rotation project as average at best.
