Ciriaco also comes off roster
The Pirates made room on the 40-man roster for Nate McLouth by designating utility infielder Pedro Ciriaco for assignment. The Pirates have until midnight on Monday (the non-tender deadline) to trade Ciriaco, otherwise Ciriaco will become a free agent. It’s unlikely that the Pirates will pursue re-signing Ciriaco, as they have other internal options that can play multiple infield options.
