Pittsburgh Pirates the team to beat in NL Central

CENTRAL DIVISION

Pittsburgh Pirates

2014: 88-74, second place. Last year in playoffs: 2014.

The Pirates scored the most runs in the division last season and had the best earned-run average. None of the regulars is 30, and all but two reached double digits in home runs last year. They have the best all-around player in the league, Andrew McCutchen, and a power-hitting, versatile infielder on their bench in Jung Ho Kang, trying to become the first position player from South Korea to hit it big in the majors.
