if you haven't already seen it:
Mar 17 Updating a previous report, USAToday.com reports the Pittsburgh Pirates have optioned OF Steve Pearce to Triple-A Indianapolis.
He probably needs another half year in AAA anyway, but when he comes up, he should mash. I know that PIT is going to move him to the OF, too. So, I would think that they are also sending him to AAA to work on his defense.
