D'Arnaud will report to Triple-A to open the season, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
ANALYSIS
D'Arnaud hit a respectable .286/.444/.500 with a stolen base and a pair of extra-base hits in eight games this spring, but it wasn't enough for him to lock down a bench role. He'll remain in major-league camp for the time being.

2010
D'Arnaud inked a minor league contract with the Braves prior to the 2016 season after spending the majority of his previous eight seasons with the Pirates' and Phillies' minor league affiliates. The veteran shortstop began the season with Triple-A Gwinnett before being promoted to the big league club in May to provide additional infield depth. The 29-year-old got off to a hot start and worked his way into an everyday role for a few weeks in June. He eventually cooled off and finished the season with very pedestrian numbers. In 262 plate appearances, he hit .245 with one home run, 24 RBI and nine stolen bases. He has never hit for much power, and concluded the season with a slugging percentage of .335. It appears d'Arnaud is forever destined for to be a reserve utility player.
The former 2008 fourth-round pick moved around the infield and outfield for Triple-A Indianapolis in an effort to save his career. Once looked upon as a possible solution for Pittsburgh at shortstop, d'Arnaud struggled to make consistent contact while suffering an assortment of injuries. He's a strong baserunner (as evidenced by his 30 steals in Indy) but the slash line of .250/.313/.356 in 376 at-bats isn't far off of his seven-season minor league average. The Pirates used him as a pinch runner in September and little else. The "other" d'Arnaud will look to impressive the Phillies after Pittsburgh released him in November of 2014.
After a somewhat promising 2011, d'Arnaud sustained a concussion early last season and never really got on track. The infielder totaled just 106 games in 2012, 98 with Triple-A Indy and eight for the Bucs. He hit .252 in the minors with a 37:93 BB:K ratio in 383 at-bats and went hitless for Pittsburgh in six at-bats. A talented baserunner, d'Arnaud has swiped 30-plus bases in each of his four full seasons. Still, unless he learns how to make consistent contact in the majors -- he had a 4:36 BB:K ratio in 2011 for the Pirates - there's little reason to get too excited about his prospects.
The Pirates will likely start d'Arnaud off in the minors, where he'll see regular action rather than serve as a backup in Pittsburgh. The infielder became a Clint Hurdle favorite with his aggressive baserunning, stealing 12 bases in only 48 big league games. Unfortunately, the holes in d'Arnaud's swing are huge. The 25-year-old compiled a 4:36 BB:K ratio and slash line of .242/.287/.528 in 143 at-bats. He still figures into the Pirates' plans, but whether he becomes an everyday player depends upon his ability to improve his plate discipline and consistency in the field. On the bright side, Pittsburgh has little depth at shortstop behind Clint Barmes, meaning d'Arnaud figures to get another shot in 2012.
The 2010 campaign set back d'Arnaud and his prospect tag as the Pirates' top middle infielder in the minors. Playing primarily at shortstop with Double-A Altoona, d'Arnaud was batting just .217 in mid June before somewhat salvaging his year with a final line of .247/.331/.377. Even so, those numbers pale in comparison to his career marks of .270/.357/.413. The clock is ticking on this 24-year-old collegiate hopeful. He was successful on 33 of 40 stolen base attempts, but he'll have to have a big 2011 to regain the luster of prospect status.
D'Arnaud, a fourth-round pick in the 2008 draft, split time between Low-A and High-A in 2009. He batted a combined .293, stealing 31 bases in 39 tries. D'Arnaud also exhibited an excellent batting eye, compiling a 60:72 BB:K ratio. He followed up with a strong AFL showing, where he led the league with 13 stolen bases and batted .296/.383/.383. At 23, D'Arnaud has already become the organization's top middle-infield prospect. He'll likely see the bulk of his playing time with Double-A Altoona in 2010.
