Arquimedes Caminero gave up four runs and five hits in 1 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Orioles.

Caminiero was a nice pickup for the Pirates pen last year, but he's really struggled this spring, giving up nine runs in 4 1/3 innings. Fortunately for him, he's out of options, which will force the Pirates to be patient with him.

Arquimedes Caminero struck out four in two scoreless innings out of the pen Monday against the Rays.

We're not sure what the Marlins were thinking getting rid of Caminero last month when he still had options remaining. He's allowed two runs and posted a 16/1 K/BB ratio in 10 innings this spring, and while that might not get him a roster spot in Pittsburgh, he projects as a setup man in time.
