Pirates Release Three Minor Leaguers

The Pittsburgh Pirates have released three minor league players, according to Baseball America’s latest transactions update. The three players were right-hander Eliecer Cardenas, infielder Greg Picart, and outfielder Anthony Norman.

The most notable was Cardenas. He was acquired as the player to be named later in the Matt Diaz trade last year. He put up strong numbers last year in high-A, but dealt with an elbow issue this year. Picart and Norman were organizational guys for the Double-A level, although there wasn’t much room for them.

Picart was the longest-serving player in the organization, going back to the 2003 draft. So, my questions for you, what player has been with the organization the longest? And, what players have been in the organization the longest without yet making it to the majors?

He may yet… perhaps this move was to free him up to move to another team in the org.?
