Pirates Cut Ten

Jen Langosch is reporting that the Pirates have cut ten players

Here are the cuts:
Andrew Lambo reassigned to Minor League camp
Brian Friday reassigned to Minor League camp
Chase d'Arnaud reassigned to Minor League camp
Aaron Thompson optioned to Double-A Altoona
Ramon Aguero optioned to Double-A Altoona
Jeff Locke optioned to Double-A Altoona
Tony Watson optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis
Gorkys Hernandez optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis
Alex Presley optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis
Daniel Moskos optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis

I guess the two biggest surprises, if you can call them that, are Presley and Thompson. There is nothing really absurd with any of these cuts. Some people were calling for Thompson because he has had some success but I really didn't see anything out of these guys that says they should be with the big club.
