Alen Hanson    2B   Pittsburgh Pirates
Hanson is in the mix for a bench spot to start the 2017 season, Pirates Prospects reports. "It's going to be an interesting spring for Alen," Clint Hurdle said. "We're going to move him around. We're going to even ask what might be there at shortstop. There's an opportunity for him to be the super U that J-Hay was in 2014."

Tyler Glasnow    P   Pittsburgh Pirates
Unless Glasnow pitches lights-out during spring training, he'll likely begin 2017 with Triple-A Indianapolis. "He's got to go out and compete, and show some improvements," manager Clint Hurdle told Pirates Prospects. "There's no free pass. It's not that it can't happen. It's the separation of Triple-A baseball and Major League baseball. He can go down there and guys don't get on base. So there's not the need that there is at the Major League level to control the running game, to mix pitches."

Juan Nicasio    P   Pittsburgh Pirates
Although the Pirates don't expect to use Nicasio as a closer, he will pitch in high-leverage situations. "I like the role we had him in last year. He flourished in it," manager Clint Hurdle told the team's website. "There were games where he could give late-inning leverage, depending on the use of the other guys. There were days he came in and stopped the biggest situation of the game in the sixth inning, then was able to add another inning to it."
