Charlie Morton to begin season on DL

Starting pitcher Charlie Morton will begin the 2012 season on the 15 day DL, GM Neal Huntington said today. Morton who was roughed up last night against Tampa Bay, needs more to get ready for the season, coming off hip surgery. Morton gave up 8 hits and 6 earned runs in 5 innings pitched against the Rays. As of now, the goal for the Pirates is for Morton to April 14th.
