BRADENTON, Fla. — This morning, four players, including reliever Romulo Sanchez, were removed from big league camp.

Sanchez, a right-hander who is on the 40-man roster, was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis. The three non-roster players — catcher Miguel Perez, righty Daniel Haigwood and infielder Pedro Lopez — were reassigned to minor league camp.

Sanchez pitched in two games and allowed one run on three runs, with no walks or strikeouts. Haigwood pitched in one game and got a save. He walked one and struck out one.

That leaves 53 players in camp with the Pirates.

More significant cuts, both in terms of numbers and player stature, should begin next week.
