Chase d’Arnaud Outrighted to Indianapolis

Chase d’Arnaud has cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis. The Pirates designated d’Arnaud for assignment last week after acquiring Brent Morel, and waived him almost immediately. Now that he has cleared waivers, he will remain in the organization and will probably serve as one of the top middle infield depth options out of Triple-A, sharing time with Robert Andino.

D’Arnaud was drafted in 2008, so he would be eligible for minor league free agency following the 2014 season, as long as he’s not on the 40-man roster by the end of the year.

  • If he could only hit and field.

    • He fields just fine at 3rd or 2nd. as a shortstop, he’s equal to Mercer in terms of fielding IMO. I also think he hits just fine, no power, but his swing has always been fine, and when he was in pittsburgh (2 years before he ever should have been) he did find ways to help the team win despite being WAY over his head. He’s a gamer, he’s tough and plays hard, i love him on my team
