Josh Wall Clears Waivers, Outrighted to Triple-A

Relief pitcher Josh Wall has cleared waivers, and has been outrighted to Triple-A, the Pirates have announced. The right-hander was claimed off waivers from the Angels back in May. He put up a 3.22 ERA in 22.1 innings with Indianapolis, along with an 8.9 K/9 and a 3.6 BB/9 ratio. Wall was designated for assignment last week, making room on the 40-man roster for the recently claimed Angel Sanchez.┬áHe will be eligible for minor league free agency by the end of the year unless he’s added to the 40-man roster again.

    The Marlins just designated Jacob Turner, owner of a 4 FIP, .368 BABIP and 51% GB rate. Everything else in his profile is trending up (FB velo, K rate) and he’s only 23. Please please please Neal get him. Put him in the pen. He’s better than Jeanmar and has more upside.

      He won’t make it to the Bucs in the waiver order…Rockies and Cubs will definitely make claims

        Time for a creative 3-team trade.
