Following Sunday’s game, the Pittsburgh Pirates announced that first baseman Stetson Allie has been reassigned to minor league camp. This move follows five cuts from yesterday, which included Tyler Glasnow. Allie wasn’t seeing time early in Spring Training due to minor hamstring issues, which limited his activity. He has played five games this spring and only had nine plate appearances.
With minor league games beginning on Wednesday and the Pirates having an off-day tomorrow, Allie will be able to see the regular playing time in the minors that he wouldn’t get with the Pirates. He didn’t have any shot to make the Pirates during Spring Training and he will likely open the season with Indianapolis this year, though nothing has been set.
