Kyle McPherson's quest to become the Pirates' fifth starter ended Wednesday, when he was one of three players optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis.
The righty was 0-3 with a 8.64 ERA in six starts this spring and served up three home runs in the fifth inning during Monday's loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
Infielder Jordy Mercer and outfielder Alex Presley were assigned to Triple-A Indianapolis, as well, while six players were assigned to minor league camp: catchers Carlos Paulino and Lucas May; outfielder Felix Pie; and pitchers Vin Mazzaro, Mike Zagurski and Ryan Reid.
The Pirates host the Minnesota Twins today during their final spring game at McKechnie Field.
