Polanco down, Tabata up, Nix gone, Barmes back

The headline covers the Bucs’ notable roster moves on Monday: Gregory Polanco to Indianapolis, Jose Tabata back up from Indy, Jayson Nix designated for assignment, and Clint Barmes activated off the DL. Polanco going to the minors is a bit of a shock – especially if you’d have told me this would be happening a couple months ago – but it does make some sense. The rookie has...

Barmes Makes Adjustment, Improves at the Plate

The common (and mostly correct) assessment of what Clint Barmes brings to the Pirates is that he’s a player who provides a capable defensive option at shortstop but brings little to the table with his bat.

Manager Clint Hurdle stuck with Barmes, however, because...
