Pirates optioned 1B Chris McGuiness, RHP Phil Irwin and 3B Brent Morel to Triple-A Indianapolis; reassigned RHPs Jake Brigham, Cody Eppley and Josh Kinney, LHP Yao-Hsun Yang and INF Chase d'Arnaud to minor league camp.
The Pirates talked up McGuinness early on in camp, but he wound up batting just .240/.296/.320 with no homers during Grapefruit League play. With Andrew Lambo also struggling at first base, any talk of Gaby Sanchez possibly platooning should now go out the window. Mar 21 - 2:00 PM
