The Pirates clarified their plans at first base this morning by optioning Andrew Lambo to Class AAA Indianapolis during a hefty round of roster moves. The Pirates hope a return to Indianapolis, where Lambo had 18 home runs and a .344 on-base percentage in 254 plate appearances last season, will stoke his confidence. Outfielder Jaff Decker was optioned to Class AAA Indianapolis, along with first baseman Andrew Lambo and sinkerballer Jared Hughes. The Pirates also optioned outfielder Jaff Decker and righty reliever Jared Hughes to Indianapolis. In our minds, the right thing to do to get him back on track was to have him start the season in Indianapolis.” They reassigned right-handers Jay Jackson and Zack Thornton, lefties Adam Wilk and Daniel Schlereth, catcher Omir Santos, infielders Robert Andino and Michael Martinez, and outfielder Chris Dickerson to minor league camp.
