Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Still expected to make team
Suwinski is still expected to make the Pirates' Opening Day roster despite some struggles this spring, manager Derek Shelton implied to Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Monday.
Suwinski has had some defensive issues during Grapefruit League play and has struck out 16 times in 35 plate appearances. However, Shelton blamed the defensive problems in part on Suwinski being bothered by the sun and also indicated the outfielder's solid rookie-season showing would be weighed heavily in roster decisions.

Meanwhile, Suwinski has started four games during spring training, three of which have come in center field.

Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Hits 14th home run
Suwinski went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in a 5-2 victory over the Yankees on Tuesday.
