What Drew Hutchison said: “I didn’t do a good job of attacking like I did the first few outings, where I’ve had success.”

What Clint Hurdle said: “(Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin’s) got his eye on one guy every time he comes in. He also encourages them, ‘Hey, y’all want to play a little football, give me a little wink on the way out.’ I tell him, ‘There’s no eligibility here. Move on.’ ... I made sure we had a head count after they left.”

Roster moves: Outfielder Barrett Barnes, catcher Christian Kelley and Erich Weiss were reassigned to minor league camp. Right-handed pitcher Dovydas Neverauskas and infielder Chris Bostick were optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis.
