Pirates DFA Aki

To make room on the roster for Pedro Alvarez, the Pirates have sent fan favorite Aki Iwamura packing.

The Bucs now have 10 days to work out a trade. Good luck with that. Iwamura could also be assigned to AAA if he accepts it.

The Pirates will most likely have to pay most, if not all, of his $4.85 M salary.

Was this the correct move? Probably but a very costly one.
