KEY GAME INFORMATION
ST LOUIS: 2017 83-79, third place
MANAGER Mike Matheny (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: LF Marcell Ozuna, RHP Miles Mikolas, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Bud Norris, INF-OF Yairo Munoz
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Lance Lynn, OF Stephen Piscotty, OF Randal Grichuk, RHP Seung-hwan Oh, RHP Juan Nicasio, SS Aledmys Diaz, RHP Trevor Rosenthal
OUTLOOK: The Cardinals have had one losing season since the start of the century, but they are facing immense pressure from fans after finishing behind the Cubs and Brewers in 2017. St. Louis missed the playoffs for a second consecutive year, the first time that's happened since 2007-2008. For the Cardinals to snap that postseason "drought," they'll need bounce-back seasons from several players -- including a healthy Wainwright on the mound and Carpenter at the plate. Few expect the Cardinals to cede the NL Central title to Chicago for a third consecutive year without putting up a fight, but St. Louis will need Ozuna and Pham to produce as expected. If they do, and the Cardinals can bring along their reworked pitching staff, the potential for a return to the playoffs is there.
PITTSBURGH: 2017 75-87, fourth place
MANAGER Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: OF Corey Dickerson, LHP Kyle Crick, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Michael Feliz, 3B Colin Moran
SUBTRACTIONS: CF Andrew McCutchen, RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Daniel Hudson, C Chris Stewart, 1B John Jaso, RHP Joaquin Benoit
OUTLOOK: General Manager Neal Huntington insists the Pirates are not rebuilding, but it certainly looks that way after they flipped franchise cornerstones McCutchen and Cole for less expensive and less proven talent. The Pirates did nothing in free agency, though they were able to grab Dickerson -- an All-Star for Tampa Bay last season -- in February. Dickerson's arrival gives Pittsburgh some stability in the outfield, but the Pirates still have some serious power issues outside of Bell, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Pittsburgh finished 29th in the majors in home runs in 2017, and while McCutchen and Dickerson's numbers are comparable, the rest of the lineup isn't exactly imposing. If Marte can put his suspension-marred 2017 behind him, if Polanco and his hamstrings can stay healthy, if Moran proves he can do more than spell Freese at third, and if Taillon, Kuhl and Williams all improve, Pittsburgh could be competitive. That's a lot of "ifs," probably a few too many.
PREVIEW
Musgrove takes mound for first time with Pirates vs. Cardinals
 

Moving from Houston to Pittsburgh, from the American League to the National League, was plenty for right-hander Joe Musgrove. Then came a right shoulder strain that lingered from spring training into the season.

On Friday, Musgrove will make his Pirates and 2018 major league debut in a series opener against the St. Louis Cardinals at PNC Park after something of a grand tour de rehab: starts in an 18-day span in Bradenton, Fla., Altoona, Pa., Indianapolis and Durham, N.C., with trips to join the Pirates between.

Musgrove, 25, the key return when Pittsburgh traded Gerrit Cole to Houston in the offseason, finally is off the disabled list and with the Pirates for what he hopes is the balance of the season.

"I'm tired of traveling," Musgrove told reporters when his rehab tour ended. "I'm tired of not being here contributing.

"So I'm ready to do my part."

A planned part of the rotation with the Pirates, Musgrove began 2017 as a starter with the Astros during their World Series season but finished in the bullpen. Overall, he was 7-8 with a 4.77 ERA. He made 15 starts and 23 relief appearances.

His absence left Pittsburgh scrambling some, using Steven Brault at times as a starter and calling up rookie Nick Kingham for three starts. Brault is now in the bullpen and Kingham with Triple-A Indianapolis, so a spot in the rotation apparently is Musgrove's to lose.

Musgrove, who has never pitched against the Cardinals, is scheduled to face John Gant (1-1, 4.67 ERA) in the first game of a three-game series.

For both clubs, Friday's game starts a stretch of 10 games against other top contenders in the NL Central, including this weekend's series in Pittsburgh and four games between the same clubs next weekend in St. Louis. Between, the Pirates play three against the Chicago Cubs at home, and the Cardinals face Milwaukee three times at home.

Pittsburgh (27-22) comes dragging in after losing five of its past six games, including a 5-4 defeat Thursday at Cincinnati.

One bright spot for the Pirates has been rookie Austin Meadows, who hit his third homer Thursday and has at least one hit in five of his six big league games since being promoted last week to fill in for injured center fielder Starling Marte.

St. Louis (26-21), which was off Thursday, is 4-7 in its past 11 games. It has lost two straight, against Kansas City, with a total of three runs.

"We know that guys are fighting to put together offense every single night when you're seeing pitchers who are putting together good stuff," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

Gant, who is slotting in for injured ace Adam Wainwright, is looking for his first win since April 26 but is coming off a strong outing.

Last Saturday against Philadelphia, Gant had a career-best seven strikeouts despite lasting just 4 1/3 innings. He got a no-decision in St. Louis' 7-6 loss.

Gant has one career start against the Pirates, a 4-1 loss last season.
