    Default Pedro Ciriaco optioned to AAA

    Which means Josh Rodriguez makes the 25 MR. With Rodriguez and Marte going to Indy you could see the entire Altoona infield except for Matt Hague return to AA!

    Here's Colin Dunlap's brief report:

    "SUNDAY, 27 MARCH 2011 16:49 WRITTEN BY COLIN DUNLAP
    BRADENTON, Fla.

    Pedro Ciriaco has been optioned to Class AAA Indianapolis.

    Rule 5 player Josh Rodriguez has made the team.

    Also, GM Neal Huntington confirmed a DL assignment for catcher Chris Snyder is "very probable."

    Hopefully, Snyder going to the DL means Bowker sticks.

    Hope Ciriaco does well and gets back. I enjoyed watching him play.

    I'm surprised, but only because all of the reporters made it sound like Ciriaco was a lock to make the team. I'm sure he's a better SS defender than J-Rod, but I still don't think he has a lot going on offensively. He got some hits this spring, but going 43 plate appearances without a walk after putting up a .286 OBP in AAA last year isn't a great sign. I'm actually glad they took a shot with Rodriguez at least to start the year. He missed some time, but he wasn't bad offensively this spring. If this is the wrong move you can correct it pretty easily in a couple weeks.

    I really enjoyed this quote from a commenter at Dejan's PG blog.
    cdbrewer
    THIS is the moment at which I lost faith in this management team.
    Really? Dejan's blog post wasn't all that much better really. He acts like Rodriguez was clearly outplayed. OBP this spring:
    Rodriguez: .401
    Ciriaco: .326

    Dejan tweeted this soon after the decision was announced:

    "#Pirates force Rule 5 pick Josh Rodriguez on roster despite richly unimpressive spring, low-ceiling skills, and being outplayed by Ciriaco."

    It looks to me as if they chose to keep them both, and this was the only way that was possible.

    I think NH said they wanted ciriaco to have everyday playing time which he could not get from our bench also why give up a rule five pick already, makes sence to do it this way to start the season

    I'm sure if he gets returned it will be because Bob Nutting is cheap and wants to get 25,000 dollars back. As the bloggers cover more live, the PG becomes more and more irrelevent.

    D'Arnaud was slated to be the SS at Indy. It will be interesting to see who plays SS and who plays 2B now. I guess Friday becomes a utility middle infielder.

    NH said D'Arnaud will move around and play several positions at AAA.

    I thought I read where Hurdle said Ciriaco will move around in preparation for a utility role. If they envision D'Arnaud as an everyday shortstop, they need to leave him at short and let him develop there.
