Sherman's Kyle Crick optioned to Triple-A

Former Sherman Bearcat Kyle Crick will not be on the Pirates opening day roster. Crick was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis today.

The 25 year old made a successful transition to the bullpen last year with a 3.06 ERA in 32.1 innings during his first taste of the majors for the Giants.

Crick was traded to Pittsburgh as part of the Andre McCutchen trade in January.
