Pirates Release Fernando Nieve

Nieve has been released by the Pirates.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have given Fernando Nieve his unconditional release, according to a team press release.  Nieve was just cut from Spring Training yesterday, and assigned to minor league camp.  He has a career 4.61 ERA in 185.2 innings in the majors, and is 28 years old.  He wouldn’t have made the starting rotation in Indianapolis, and might not have been a candidate for the bullpen, which explains his release.  The Pirates originally signed Nieve back in early December.
