Roster Moves: Ronny Cedeno And Steve Pearce Return

The Pirates reinstated both Ronny Cedeno and Steve Pearce from the disabled list today and optioned Chris Leroux back to Indianapolis. Nothing surprising here - my only thought is that they waited a day to option Leroux because they had roster issues in Indy. Yesterday, Brian Burres was placed on the minor-league DL, and Josh Rodriguez was sent to Altoona to make room for Josh Harrison and Pedro Ciriaco in Indianapolis. I am not aware of a move to make room for Leroux.

The Pirates had an open spot on the 25-man roster, so no other moves need to be made today. With Ryan Doumit starting his rehab stint in Bradenton and Pedro Alvarez coming along in Indy, the next moves would appear most likely to affect Eric Fryer and Chase d'Arnaud when Pedro and Doumit are brought back to Pittsburgh.
