Pirates, Jays rained out

Bradenton, Fla. — The Toronto Blue Jays' spring training game at the Pittsburgh Pirates was rained out Thursday.

The game will not be made up.

Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole, slated to start against Toronto, will pitch against Minnesota in a "B'' game Friday morning.

Cole allowed two runs in two innings against the Blue Jays in his initial outing on Feb. 28.

Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke does not expect to miss much time due to tightness in his right oblique.

Locke felt what he said felt like "a continuous little pull" during his last bullpen session and was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday.

"It's very minor. We'll take a few days and re-evaluate," Locke said. "It's funny. I was just out there throwing normally.

“It could be I was coming out of my turn quick. It could be I didn't stretch enough."
