Pirates Designate Akinori Iwamura For Assignment

To make way for Alvarez on the 25-man roster, the Pirates have designated Akinori Iwamura for assignment, meaning he’s very unlikely to be back with the Pirates this year. This was a no-brainer, as the Bucs had to get rid of an infielder and Iwamura has hit .182 this year and has no future with the team.
