LHP Bas­tardo let go

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BASEBALL -

CHICAGO — Af­ter a half sea­son of bad pitch­ing and in­jury, An­to­nio Bas­tardo was des­ig­nated for as­sign­ment Satur­day.

The move re­moves the 31-year-old left-han­der from the Pirates’ 40-man ros­ter. They have 10 days to trade or re­lease Bas­tardo or, if he clears waivers, they can send him out­right to the mi­nors. But Bas­tardo has enough ser­vice time to re­ject such an as­sign­ment and still col­lect the re­main­der of his $6.5 mil­lion salary.
