John Jaso's third spring homer was a two-run shot Tuesday in the Pirates' 5-4 win over the Rays.
Jaso, who was playing third base today, hit a long bomb to left off Alex Cobb in the first. He's sporting a .310 average and an 1.107 OPS this spring, so it'll be interesting to see how the Pirates carve out a role for him in the early going. Josh Bell is expected to get the bulk of the time at first base, with David Freese likely playing third until Jung Ho Kang is cleared to join the club. Jaso belongs in more just a pinch-hitting role, so it still seems like a trade is the best option here. Mar 21 - 4:46 PM
