He’s 6’7″, just the way the Pirates like their pitchers. He’s improved every year for the last three seasons. I’d be shocked if the Pirates put him on waivers.

Barmes and his .192 average are evidently good enough.

Also Slaten had an out-clause in his contract and had to be added to the roster, or he would have been lost.

What about Moskos? Pirates did not show a lot of faith by promoting Slaten over him. Neil will probably just add someone to the 60 day DL. He has a knack for that.

He really doesn’t seem like a valuable long term option, and there are many guys ahead of him on the bullpen depth chart, even in AAA. And agreed Mercer easy choice from 25 man.

Give Clement another shot. Not sure how to add him to the roster, but releasing McGehee doesn’t seem unthinkable.
