The Pittsburgh Pirates made their second round of spring training cuts Tuesday, reducing their roster to 49 players.

Shortstop Cole Tucker, outfielder Jason Martin and right-handed pitchers Jesus Liranzo and Aaron Slegers were optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis, and right-hander Alex McRae was reassigned to minor-league camp.

Tucker batted .389 with two home runs and three RBIs in 12 Grapefruit League games. Martin batted .304 with two homers and four RBIs.

Liranzo was 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA in four appearances, while the 6-foot-10 Slegers was 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA in four games.

There are now 22 pitchers, six catchers, 12 infielders and nine outfielders in camp, including 17 non-roster invitees.
