Pirates designated RHP Vin Mazzaro for assignment.

Mazzaro had a 3.48 ERA in 10 1/3 innings with the Bucs. He was also designated for assignment in late March and made it through waivers unclaimed, but MLB clubs are more desperate for bullpen arms here in May.

Pirates purchased the contract of RHP Vin Mazzaro from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Mazzaro was designated for assignment by the Pirates at the end of spring training but elected to stay with the organization rather than test free agency. He now has an opportunity to run away with a mid-relief role.

Vin Mazzaro has accepted an outright assignment to Low-A Jamestown.

Mazzaro will join Triple-A Indianapolis soon. The Pirates are fortunate not only that the righty cleared waivers but that he decided to stick around in the organization rather than elect free agency. He'll provide some nice minor league depth.

Pirates sent RHP Vin Mazzaro outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington implied that the team is likely to trade reliever Vin Mazzaro.

"We’ve had conversations," Huntington said. "If he gets to the outright waiver process, it will be a surprise to us." Mazzaro was designated for assignment Saturday after he failed to make the team out of spring. He had a strong 2013 season, and it's not surprising that teams looking for relief help would call on the 27-year-old.

Pirates designated RHP Vin Mazzaro for assignment.

Mazzaro posted a steady 2.81 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 46/21 K/BB ratio in 73 2/3 innings last season, but the Pirates have a loaded bullpen and simply couldn't find room.
Sat, Mar 29, 2014 01:30:00 PM

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Pirates are willing to listen to offers for reliever Vin Mazzaro.

Mazzaro is out of options this spring and is coming off a 2.81 ERA over 57 appearances last season, but he appears to be the odd man out in Pittsburgh's bullpen at the moment. The Pirates might be able to find a taker.

Pirates avoided arbitration with RHP Vin Mazzaro by agreeing to a one-year, $950,000 contract.

Pirates sent RHP Vin Mazzaro outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.
