BRADENTON, Fla. – Steven Brault is one of the few players with any significant amount of major league experience taking part in the Pirates’ minicamp.
The left-hander has been working out daily this week at Pirate City. He threw a bullpen Wednesday, a day before the four-day camp ends.
Under terms of Major League Baseball’s collective bargaining agreement, players’ participation in such events is strictly voluntary. Brault, unlike many of his teammates, decided to volunteer and flew across the country from his home in San Diego on Sunday.
