Donnelly not renewed for 2010


CHICAGO — The Pirates will not renew the contract of Rich Donnelly for 2010. Donnelly served the past two years as an instructor/advisor to the Baseball Operations department. He spent most of this year as an extra coach on the major league staff. Donnelly is not with the team for this final road trip of the season.

— Right-hander Anthony Claggett was added to the roster and will be in uniform for tonight’s game against the Cubs. Claggett was claimed off waivers from the Yankees last Thursday.

— The Pirates’ home attendance dropped by about 2 percent from last year. The final figure of 1,577,853 is the lowest ever at PNC Park, which opened in 2001, and is the franchise’s worst total since 1998.
