Chase d’Arnaud among 10 cuts

The Pirates optioned Chase d’Arnaud, Jeff Locke, Rudy Owens, and Duke Welker. Robbie Grossman, Tony Sanchez, Anderson Hernandez, Ramon Cabrera, Michael Crotta, and Logan Kensing were all assigned to minor league camp, as well.

There really aren’t any surprises here other than d’Arnaud. Based on who is in camp, d’Arnaud was definitely a long shot to make the club, but I was not expecting him to be in this first round of cuts.
