    The Pirates optioned Barrett to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Impact

    After being scooped up off waivers from the Giants earlier in the month, Barrett was given the chance to compete for a bullpen role with the big club but couldn't make the cut. The fact that he still had a minor-league option remaining may have been the primary reason he failed to break camp with the Pirates more so than the organization being dissatisfied with his performance this spring.

    News

    Barrett was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Friday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    Barrett was designated for assignment by the Giants last week shortly after being acquired from the Diamondbacks. The 27-year-old saw action in only seven major-league games last season, and allowed four runs and two walks over seven innings while striking out six.
