Pirates Insider Jason Mackey

Friday, August 7th

With Colin Moran only making his 4th start of the year at third base today, we ask Jason why the Pirates wouldn't be calling up Ke'Bryan Hayes to play the position most days.  Asked the chances of Adam Frazier being on this team come September 1st, Jason says it's likely he's gone.  Jason tells us his first impressions of JT Brubaker as a starter.  With Chad Kuhl making his first start in 2 years we ask Jason what he's hearing about the teams future plans for him.  Jason is not overly concerned about Bryan Reynolds slow start to the year.  We also get Jason's thoughts on the Pens potentially being eliminated this afternoon.  Jason tells us the complicated ties between the Pens and Jack Johnson right now.
