BRADENTON, Fla. -- Manager Jim Tracy yesterday said Jose Bautista will be the Pirates' regular third baseman and that Jose Castillo -- "as of today" -- will be on the club "in a reserve utility role."

Tracy cited what he feels is Bautista's better plate discipline as the reason for making this announcement.

"Mediocrity is not what we're striving for here," Tracy said.
