    If/when JJ goes to Triple-A, Erik Kratz likely would be backup catcher -- which would require another 40-man roster move. @pbyrne13

    We're pretty much down close to what you'll see heading north at this point. A couple floaters left.

    I think we need to figure out the last catcher position, the same bullpen question we've had (long relief arm) and that should be about it?

    I think Penn has a good shot at the long arm position.

    ... I guess anything is a possibility, but Penn really needs to work on his control and command. He looks like a NH type guy. He has a high K rate with dreadful command and control. Unlike Meek and Veal the Pirates don't have to carry a guy like that. He should be in AAA IMO improving his command and control

    He is Out of Options, that is why the Marlins just did not send him down. They tried to sneak him through the wavers but the pirates snatched him up.
    Now they may try the Veal route where he goes out and pitches a couple of games then gets hurt so they send down to rehab.

    Penn's barely even competing for a spot to start the season. There are only 12 healthy pitchers in camp right now, so the decision is to either go with him or bring 11 pitchers north (unless they claim another pitcher). With Moss out of the picture the decision to carry 14 position players would mean either Vazquez or Pearce make the big league club. It looks like the spot is Penn's to lose for right now and they'll give him until Hanrahan's return to figure out what they want to do with him.
