Pirates make 8 spring training cuts

The Pirates have made the following cuts from big-league spring training:

-P- They have reassigned infielder Chase d'Arnaud and pitchers Jake Brigham, Cody Eppley, Josh Kinney and Yao-Hsun Yang.

-P- They have optioned first baseman Chris McGuiness (above), infielder Brent Morel and pitcher Phil Irwin.

This spring's cuts aren't surprising. None of these players were expected to make the team, and with the exception of the last few bullpen spots, it's pretty clear who's going to make the 25-man roster at this point. We could easily see McGuiness, Morel and Irwin, in particular, in Pittsburgh later this season, however. The Pirates now have 42 players remaining in camp.
