Nutting: Pirates had 'step back' in '16, but talent is there

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates missed the playoffs last season for the first time in four years, but that won't cause chairman Bob Nutting to abandon the team's steady, build-from-within approach.

"We have not embraced, as many teams have, that you have to go in cycles and you have to commit to five years of a bad team in a rebuilding cycle," Nutting said Monday after addressing the team at spring training. "We believe that by infusing talent into the organization at every level we can, every way that we can, we can create a sustained, competitive team. We may be proven wrong at some point, but that's still our target and our goal."

Nutting, the club's principal owner since 2007, talked to the players and coaches for about 30 minutes. He touched briefly on last season, when the Pirates went 78-83 and finished third in the NL Central.
