Pirates send Andrew Lambo, among others, to minor league camp

The Pirates reassigned Andrew Lambo, Jared Hughes, Jaff Decker, and a eight other players were all sent to Triple-A or other minor league camps this morning. There isn't really much news beyond Lambo's reassignment, which has only really seemed like a possibility in the last week or so. I wrote quite a bit about this and why I think time spent on Ishikawa is just wasted...

Pirates Notebook: Jared Hughes Rides Again

They said he would never return. Who said that? Well… (Photo Credit: David Hague) Clint Hurdle had only one hope left.

Pirates Release Jose Contreras

The Pirates have released Jose Contreras. The Pittsburgh Pirates have released Jose Contreras. The right-hander was with Indianapolis, and was performing well. He had given up just one earned run in 16.1 innings with the Indians since being sent down from the majors. He also had a 19:5 K/BB ratio. My guess is that they released him to give him an opportunity to sign elsewhere where...
