PITTSBURGH: 2016: 78-83, third place
Manager: Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
Who's new? RHP Daniel Hudson, IF Phil Gosselin
Who's gone? IF Sean Rodriguez, OF Matt Joyce, SP Jeff Locke, SP Ryan Vogelsong, RP Neftali Feliz, C Eric Fryer
Projected lineup: 2B Josh Harrison (.283, 4 HR, 59 RBI, 19 SB), 1B Josh Bell (.273, 3, 19), RF Andrew McCutchen (.256, 24, 79), CF Starling Marte (.311, 9, 46, 47 SB), LF Gregory Polanco (.258, 22, 86), 3B Jung-ho Kang (.255, 21, 62), C Francisco Cervelli (.264, 1, 33), SS Jordy Mercer (.256, 11, 59)
Rotation: RH Gerrit Cole (7-10, 3.88 ERA), RH Ivan Nova (12-8, 4.17 for Yankees and Pirates), RH Jameson Taillon (5-4, 3.38), RH Chad Kuhl (5-4, 4.20), RH Drew Hutchison (1-0, 5.25 with Blue Jays and Pirates) or Steven Brault (0-3, 4.86) or Trevor Williams (1-1, 7.82) or Tyler Glasnow (0-2, 4.24)
Key relievers: LH Tony Watson (2-5, 3.06, 15/20 SV), RH Daniel Hudson (3-2, 5.22 with Diamondbacks), LH Felipe Rivero (1-6, 4.09 for Nationals and Pirates), RH Juan Nicasio (10-7, 4.50), LH Antonio Bastardo (3-0, 4.52 with Mets and Pirates), RH Jared Hughes (1-1, 3.03), LH Wade LeBlanc (4-0, 3.77 with Mariners and Pirates)
Hot spots: Rotation and closer. Right-hander Glasnow, 23, is a consensus top-25 prospect who made his major league debut last year. The Pirates would love to see him seize the fifth starter's job in camp, but right-hander Hutchison offers a more experienced option if Glasnow isn't ready. Watson became the closer after Mark Melancon was traded to Washington last summer, but his sinker/slider/changeup mix isn't typical ninth-inning stuff. Keep an eye on Rivero, a 25-year-old lefty acquired in the Melancon trade. His fastball actually gained velocity as last season wore on, eventually touching triple digits. Rivero might begin the season as the set-up man but his ascension to the ninth inning seems inevitable.
Outlook: The Pirates made some interesting tweaks after missing the playoffs for the first time in four years. They made no major trades, signed only two major league free agents (pitchers Nova and Hudson) and revamped Hurdle's coaching staff. They also moved their outfielders around: McCutchen goes from center to right, Marte from left to center, and Polanco from right to left. McCutchen is coming off the worst season of his career. So is ace right-hander Cole. The path back to the playoffs begins with the two stars bouncing back. If the team's other homegrown talent ' Taillon, Glasnow, Bell and Polanco ' continue their evolution, Pittsburgh should return to the postseason in 2017.
MILWAUKEE: 2016: 73-89, fourth place
Manager: Craig Counsell (third season)
Who's new? 1B Eric Thames, 3B Travis Shaw, C Jett Bandy, RHP Neftali Feliz, RHP Joba Chamberlain, LHP Tommy Milone
Who's gone? 1B Chris Carter, C Martin Maldonado, OF Rymer Liriano, RHP Tyler Thornburg, RHP Blaine Boyer, LHP Chris Capuano
Projected lineup: 2B Jonathan Villar (.285, 19 HR, 63 RBI, 62 SB), SS Orlando Arcia (.219, 4, 17), LF Ryan Braun (.305, 30, 91, 16), 1B Eric Thames (.317, 40, 118, 13 SBs in Korea), RF Domingo Santana (.256, 11, 32), 3B Travis Shaw (.242, 16, 71 with Red Sox), CF Keon Broxton (.242, 9, 19, 23 SB), C Jett Bandy (.234, 8, 25 with Angels)
Rotation: Junior Guerra (9-3, 2.81 ERA), Zach Davies (11-7, 3.97), Matt Garza (4-8, 4.51), Wily Peralta (7-11, 3.86), Jimmy Nelson (8-16, 4.62) or Chase Anderson (9-11, 4.39) or Tommy Milone (3-5, 5.71 with Twins)
Key relievers: RHP Neftali Feliz (4-2, 3.52 with Pirates), RHP Corey Knebel (1-4, 4.68), RHP Carlos Torres (3-3, 2.73), RHP Jhan Marinez (0-1, 3.22), RHP Joba Chamberlain (0-0, 2.25 with Indians), RHP Jacob Barnes (0-1, 2.70), RHP Tyler Cravy (0-1, 2.86) Hot spot: Fifth starter. Guerra and Davies began last season in the minors, then emerged as pleasant surprises in an otherwise long season. Now the Brewers have seven candidates for five rotation jobs. Nelson, who's led the staff in innings the last two years, might be wary of his two minor league options if he struggles out of the gate.
Outlook: No team was more active on the bases last season than the Brewers, whose 181 steals were the most by any team since 2009. Villar, Broxton and Hernan Perez were the primary thieves, and all return. The front office curiously chose not to bring back Carter after a 41-home run season. His replacement is Thames, who hasn't had a major league at-bat since 2012. Hitter-friendly Miller Park will do no favors to their pedestrian pitching staff, but the Brewers aren't expected to contend for at least another couple seasons. At least their offense will be entertaining in the meantime.
Brewers welcome Pirates for 4-game set

MILWAUKEE -- The National League Central so far shapes up as the Milwaukee Brewers sitting on top of a tight, mediocre division.

It's Pittsburgh's turn to try to knock the Brewers down a peg. The Pirates open a four-game series Monday at Milwaukee.

Pittsburgh (31-38) is six games back of Milwaukee after dropping two of three against the divisional rival and World Series champion Chicago Cubs over the weekend at PNC Park.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle declined to lament a lost opportunity to build more divisional momentum going into Milwaukee.

"We have to go play the game," Hurdle said after a 7-1 loss Sunday. "They're in a hunt. We're in a hunt. You want to go win a series. ... I'm not going to sit up here and exchange levels of disappointment. To me, that doesn't make any sense.

"You keep things simple as far as showing up and playing the game, doing everything you can to win the game today."

The Brewers (38-33) have won five of six after beating San Diego 2-1 on Sunday. The division features a cluster where the teams are separated by seven games top to bottom.

The Pirates won two of three in their first series against Milwaukee in early May at PNC Park.

Pittsburgh will send out right-hander Gerrit Cole on Monday. Cole (4-6, 4.54 ERA) could be rounding back into the form that made him the team's No. 1 starter entering the season.

On Tuesday, he pitched seven strong innings (one run, three hits, three walks, three strikeouts) in Pittsburgh's 5-2 win over Colorado.

"I just tried to get back to locating the ball down and landing smoothly, and just trusting it worked," said Cole, who was coming off of a rough stretch.

In his four starts before Tuesday, Cole went 1-2 with a 10.73 ERA, with 23 runs on 39 hits -- including eight homers -- allowed over 19 1/3 innings. He did not make it past five innings in any of those starts.

The game against the Rockies harkened Cole's earlier performances. He had eight quality starts before the four-game slide.

"(Cole) stayed off the barrel, he controlled their bat speed," Hurdle said. "It was a strong outing."

Cole is 3-2 in his career against Milwaukee but pitched a gem May 6, when he gave one earned run over seven innings in a no-decision before he went into his lull.

Milwaukee will counter Monday with right-hander Matt Garza (5-2, 4.17 ERA).

He will be making his second start since coming off the disabled list for the second time this season, most recently for a chest contusion.

In his last start Wednesday at St. Louis, Garza picked up a win in a five-inning outing, allowing four runs on five hits with four strikeouts and two walks as Milwaukee won 7-6.

In that game, all four runs Garza allowed came in the second, including four straight hits.

"It shouldn't have been as close as it was," Garza told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "The second inning kind of got me. In the middle of it I was just telling myself, 'Slow down, catch your breath, keep going. Keep attacking.'"

After that, Garza faced the minimum for his final three innings.

Garza is 3-6 with a 4.14 ERA in 14 career starts against Pittsburgh. He also had a strong outing with a no-decision May 6 against Cole and the Pirates, giving up one run on eight hits over seven innings, with four strikeouts and no walks.
