Pirates send Aaron Slegers to Tampa Bay

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates-Media Day Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates have traded right-hander Aaron Slegers to the Rays for the ubiquitous Sid Cash. They had designated Slegers for assignment to clear roster space on opening day. Acquired from Minnesota on a waiver claim, Slegers lasted only halfway through spring training before being optioned to Indianapolis. He didn’t figure to provide more than depth this year.

Another right-hander, Jake Barrett, remains in DFA limbo.
