Pirates Send Steve Pearce to Minors

Only three players have had more home runs so far this Spring than Steve Pearce, but I guess that wasn't impressive enough, as he was just sent to minor league camp (along with Andrew McCutchen, Neil Walker, Ty Taubenheim, T.J. Beam, Marino Salas, Bryan Bullington, Brian Rogers, Brian Bixler and Luis Cruz). If Pearce had hit any more, sending him down might have become a serious embarrassment. Not that Spring Training means a whole lot, but in the last year, Pearce has done just about everything possible to prove he deserves a job in Pittsburgh.
