Locke is in a three-way battle for the last two spots in the team’s starting rotation

Lefty Jeff Locke, Ryan Vogelsong and Juan Nicasio are competing for the final two spots in the Pirates’ rotation. Locke started 30 games last season, tying a career high, but had a 4.49 ERA and pitched inconsistently.

Locke is changing his delivery in an attempt to improve his consistency and trying to become less predictable. He has had an uneven spring training. PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko caught up with Locke recently.
