Roster Updates: Ciriaco, Presley, Tabata

Ciriaco has been optioned to AAA.

A few roster updates this morning…

-Pedro Ciriaco has been optioned to AAA Indianapolis.  The Pirates are expected to call up Alex Presley tomorrow.  Ciriaco had just six at-bats this year, with no hits.  He was in the majors for a combined 37 days this year.  The 40-man roster page has been updated with the moves.

-Jose Tabata has been diagnosed with a left quad strain.  His status is uncertain at this time, and he hasn’t been placed on the DL yet.

My question is can Ciriaco find a way to be promoted for a 3rd time this season? With Cedeno, Wood and d’Arnaud all being SS, its going to be difficult but maybe he can pull it off.

Tough break for Ciriaco. Gotta admire how he was being used. That will leave a huge hole on the bench for Hurdle.

if the Pirates were 15 games out of 1st place, then you have every right to gripe about the roster spot.  the fact that we are 1 game over 500 and only a handful of games out of first shows that the front office knows alot more about player placement than we do.

That’s OK, they can can cover the hole with a bucket of sunflower seeds.
