Tigers, Pirates rained out of spring training game

Posted: Updated:

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - The spring training game between the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates was rained out Monday.

STARTING TIME

Pirates: Left-hander Wandy Rodriguez, who was to start Monday, was rescheduled for Tuesday against Toronto. Instead of facing the Blue Jays, left-hander Jeff Locke will pitch in a minor league game.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Pirates: Francisco Liriano's status as Pittsburgh's opening-day starter could be decided Wednesday, when the left-hander is scheduled to throw off a bullpen mound in either a minor league game or simulated game. Liriano left his last start early due to tightness in a groin.

"I feel good now, but we'll see what happens tomorrow," Liriano said.

Tigers: Outfielder Rajai Davis (hamstring) got at-bats as the designated hitter
