The Pirates' AAA affiliate has announced its opening day roster. The missing names are RHP Jameson Taillon, LHP Clayton Richard, IF Justin Sellers and OF Jaff Decker. Taillon, Sellers and Decker are recovering from injuries or Tommy John surgery, while Richard will start off in extended spring training, as Vance Worley did last year. There are two other potential, early-season additions if RHP Stolmy Pimentel and SS Pedro Florimon clear waivers.
