BRADENTON, Fla. Brenden Dillon Jersey . - Coming off their first playoff appearance in 21 years, the Pittsburgh Pirates were eager to start spring training. Several players have been training regularly at the Pirate City complex since early January. When 36 pitchers and catchers held their first official workout on Thursday, a half-dozen position players were there, too. The Pirates won 94 games last season and advanced to the NL division series, their first post-season berth since 1992. They were eliminated by the St. Louis Cardinals in the decisive Game 5. "Were still hungry," catcher Russell Martin said. "We did some special things last year, but everybody was disappointed with how it finished. I dont know what all the experts are saying, but I consider myself an expert and I think were going to do better than we did last year." They will have to do it without veteran right-hander A.J. Burnett, who has agreed to a one-year, $16 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies. Burnett made 61 starts and won 26 games over the past two seasons with the Pirates. After hearing that Burnett chose not to return to Pittsburgh, Martin sent a text message to his former teammate. "I wished him well," Martin said. "I hope he stays healthy and has a good season ... and, hopefully, well meet him in the playoffs and beat him." Many players admitted they were surprised and disappointed about Burnetts departure. Others preferred to look ahead. "Weve got to move on," reliever Mark Melancon said. "You cant live in the past. This is a new year and anything can happen." Even without Burnett, the Pirates have the makings of a solid starting rotation. Left-hander Francisco Liriano, who went 16-8 with a 3.02 ERA, is the likely opening day starter. Gerrit Cole (10-7, 3.22) and Charlie Morton (7-4, 3.26) also return. Wandy Rodriguez missed most of last season due to a sore left forearm. He is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Friday and is expected to be ready for the start of the season. "Physically, hes coming along very well," general manager Neal Huntington said. "Were going to take it slow with him this spring, so hes kind of on a different program than the other guys. But, hes healthy and feels good." New arrival Edinson Volquez, who signed a $5 million deal in December, and Jeff Locke could battle for the No. 5 job. The 26-year-old Locke won eight straight starts in the first half of the season and made the NL All-Star team. However, he went 2-5 with a 6.12 ERA over his final 12 starts and was shut down in September. "Making the playoffs last year meant a lot to us," Locke said. "The fans in Pittsburgh and the rest of the baseball world hadnt seen it in a while, but I know the 25 guys in our clubhouse knew it was something we could do. Were not under anybodys radar anymore, but I think the 25 guys this year will be up to the challenge." NOTES: The Pirates signed LHP Yao-Hsun Yang to a minor league contract, which includes an invitation to spring training. Yang, 31, made nine outings last year in the minor leagues in Japan. Brandon Bollig Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. Jannik Hansen Jersey . Coach Jorge Sampaoli resisted naming any major surprises in the list published Tuesday at the site of Chiles football association. Chile is pinning its hopes on the recovery of Vidal. .K. Subban has picked the right time of the year to go on an offensive tear.Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome testified under oath Thursday that he heard suspended running back Ray Rice tell NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell he struck his then-fiancee in a casino elevator in February, according to ESPN. Newsomes testimony on the second and final day of Rices appeal hearing would seem to contradict what the NFL commissioner has previously said the running back told him during a disciplinary hearing on June 16. Goodell has said Rice was ambiguous about what happened in the elevator at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. The commissioner, who testified on Wednesday, suspended Rice indefinitely on Sept. 8 after video of him striking the woman who is now his wife was posted onlinne by TMZ. Joel Ward Jersey. Rice was released by the Ravens on the same day. Goodell originally suspended Rice for two games after their meeting in June, but later said he didnt get it right. Rice argues that the league violated labor laws by increasing his punishment after the video surfaced. He and his wife testified on Thursday. Former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones presided over the appeal hearing and will now decide whether or not Rice is reinstated. It was the first time an NFL disciplinary hearing was conducted with a neutral arbitrator, something the NFL Players Association said enhances the credibility and integrity of our business and is the due process that every athlete deserves.
