Lerud reassigned by Pirates

Steve Lerud's first taste of spring training with a Major League team ended on Tuesday when the Pittsburgh Pirates reassigned the 2003 Galena High graduate.

Lerud, a catcher, appeared in one game for the Pirates' Major League team in spring training, going 0-for-2. It's likely that Lerud will begin the year either with the Pirates High Class A affiliate in Lynchburg, Va., or the Pirates Double A squad in Altoona, Pa.
