Minor Moves: Oneil Cruz Dealing with Lower Body Discomfort

The Pittsburgh Pirates made a few minor moves today, and we received news on shortstop Oneil Cruz, who has played just once in the last eight days.

According to Larry Broadway, who is the Senior Director of Minor League Operations for the Pirates, Cruz has been dealing with lower body discomfort. He is not expected to miss much more time. Cruz was assigned to Extended Spring Training yesterday instead of being placed on the injured list. That was to make room on the active roster for infielder Nick Franklin, who made his season debut on Wednesday.

Indianapolis activated right-handed pitcher Dovydas Neverauskas today and assigned right-handed pitcher Montana DuRapau to Extended Spring Training. Neverauskas has been pitching on rehab for Bradenton and Indianapolis for the last week. He was dealing with a left oblique strain and missed half of Spring Training.

When second baseman Kevin Kramer returned to Indianapolis, that pushed infielder Alfredo Reyes back to Altoona. Reyes will be in uniform tonight, while infielder Robbie Glendinning has been sent to Bradenton to make room on the Altoona roster. Glendinning hit .300/.348/.500 for the Curve.

If anymore minor moves come up today, we will add them to this article.
