Pirates Out of Options
The answer is simple, both guys are out of minor league options and would have to clear waivers before they could be outrighted to the minor leagues. Some team would surely claim them and while they haven't lit the world on fire as members of the Pirates, both have shown that they have talent and no team wants to give up on talented players too soon.
Here is a list of the other Buccos that are out of options: Moss, Young, Andy Laroche, Joel Hanrahan and Ronny Cedeno. All would have to clear waivers before being sent to the minors. A more likely option would be for the Bucs to deal one of them for a small return, in the event they have given up on them.
