  • Pirates' Hunter Owen: Moves to minor-league camp

    The Pirates reassigned Owen to minor-league camp Tuesday.

    Owen is expected to open the season at Triple-A Indianapolis, where he should play on a near-everyday basis. The 28-year-old made his big-league debut in 2021, going hitless across five plate appearances with Pittsburgh before he was outrighted off the 40-man roster last May.
