Penn to report to Indy
Nothing major here, but right-hander Hayden Penn has accepted his assignment to Triple-A and will be reporting to Indianapolis. Penn cleared waivers last week and had until today to decide if he wanted to take the Minor League assignment or become a free agent.
Now that Penn is guaranteed to remain with the organization, the Pirates plan to work to make his delivery motion more consistent and encourage the addition of a third pitch. Penn made three appearances with the Pirates this season — 2 1/3 IP, 8 H, 8 ER, 3 BB — before being designated for assignment.
