PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to talk about Starling Marte and the unreal tear he is on right now.

Hurdle said he is impressed by Marte because he isn’t just hitting fast balls, he’s hitting breaking balls and he’s even laying down bunts for hits right now.  All of that being said, Hurdle told the show Marte has zero chances of making the team out of spring.

Hurdle also talked about the commitment ownership has made in the form of the Andrew McCutchen signing and what that says to him.

Clint also told us what to expect from his outfield and what order his three outfielders will be hitting in the top of the order.

We wrapped things up getting Hurdle’s thoughts on what he has seen from Pedro Alvarez so far.
