Vasquez released, Pearce Optioned


According to DK's twitter feed (and PBC live blog) the Pirates have released Ramon Vasquez and optioned Steve Pearce, so Penn and Raynor make the roster.  

Seems to make sense, Vasquez didn't really contribute much at this point, and there was no risk of losing Pearce like there was with Penn and Raynor.  I particularly like that they kept Penn, since despite the fact he was hit pretty hard yesterday, it sounds as though he displayed some strong pitches (mid 90s heater, sharp curve) and had generally good location (which is supposed to be his big issue).
