Freddy Steady? and Cuts

Dr. Andrews found no structural issues with Freddy's shoulder. Sanchez may still be available for opening day(U.S. version) if not as a starter, possibly from the bench.

Four players were cut from the Pirates Spring roster:
Thompson, Of
Dessens, P
Bayliss, P
Fossum, P

Bayliss was also removed from the 40 man roster. He will need to clear waivers before reporting to Indy.

Luis Rivas, IF, was added to the 40 man roster. He will likely head north in the event Sanchez is not ready.

In other roster moves:
Due to options in their contract, Doug M(ienkewicz) and Jarret Wright will have the option of opting out of their contracts on Wednesday(Doug M.) and Thursday(Wright) if not named to the roster. If they do not opt out, they are heading north. Doug M. would likely mean Morgan is headed to Indy.

BTW Take:
Morgan should start in Indy. Wright should be in the pen. Let's see what happens.

Bayliss will likely get claimed off waivers.
