Bonifay is back

Josh Bonifay is back in the Pirates organization.

Bonifay, the son of former general manager Cam Bonifay, signed a minor league deal as a player-coach (but expect his playing time to be minimal, if anything). Josh Bonifay, 30, spent seven years as a player in the Pirates’ farm system and had a couple of very good seasons at Double-A Altoona. He went back to college in 2007, then last year became a coach for the Pirates’ Class A team in Hickory.

The Pirates also signed journeyman pitcher Jeremy Powell to a minor league contract. Powell, 32, played the past eight years in Japan. The right-hander made 27 starts in the majors for the Montreal Expos, and last pitched in America in June 2001. Powell will be in the mix for a spot with Triple-A Indianapolis this summer.
