Pirates cut 4 players from camp

The Pirates cut 1B Jeff Clement, OF Brandon Boggs, P Tim Wood, and P Daniel Cabrera from Major League camp this morning.

There really aren’t any surprises out of this bunch. Boggs and Wood were the two out of the four that had an outside chance at making the club (very outside chance). Boggs was only 2 for 20 this spring. Wood put up a 2.25 ERA over 4 IP and will probably go back to serving as Indianapolis’ closer, like he did for much of last season.

With the cuts, there are now 39 players remaining in big league camp.

    Its too bad about Clement. Blame it on injuries. He was a dam good catcher that should have finished his college career at USC before going pro. He would have broken Mark Mcguire’s┬ácollege home run record. Maybe his luck would have been better then. He would make a good coach I think. Someone should give him a chance in that field.

      Yeah, I have always liked him. Injuries definitely have not treated him well.
