Steve Pearce was granted his fourth Minor League option by Major League Baseball. The first-baseman only played 52 games during the 2010 season due to ankle and knee injuries. He was activated from the 60-day disabled list last week due to end of the season knee surgery.
Pearce will enter the 2011 season with one option and will be healthy to fight for a spot in Spring Training. Pearce –if he can stay healthy– could be a utility guy, and/or platoon with Garrett Jones at first-base. If Delwyn Young is non-tendered, Pearce could also serve as a pinch-hitter role.
In 15 games with the Pirates, Pearce batted .276 with five RBI.
