Removed from 40-man roster The Pirates designated Craig for assignment Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Impact A 2016 first-round pick, Craig will cede his spot on the 40-man roster to reliever Ashton Goudeau, whom the team claimed off waivers from the Rockies. Craig turned in 20-homer seasons in the minors, but his 92 wRC+ as a 24-year-old at Triple-A Indianapolis in 2019 was rather unremarkable, given his pedigree. He'll likely return to Indianapolis in 2021 if he doesn't get claimed by another organization.
