Pirates Sign Kyle Waldrop

The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed right-handed pitcher Kyle Waldrop, per a team press release. Waldrop has pitched 32.1 innings in the majors with the Twins. He has a 3.62 ERA in that time frame, but pretty unimpressive secondary numbers. His K/9 and BB/9 are both 3.3.

The 6′ 5″, 220 pound pitcher spent his entire career with the Twins. In his time in Triple-A he had a 3.21 ERA in 201.2 innings, with a 5.4 K/9 and a 2.3 BB/9. He’s got an upper-80s to low-90s sinker, and gets a lot of ground balls. That’s been a trend for the non-roster pitchers that have been brought in this year, and it’s been a trend for a lot of the Pirates right-handers in the majors over the last few years.

This cat is a serious sleeper. I have seen him throw and i know the numbers aren’t there yet, but trust me….. he is going to be someone who sells a lot of jerseys in Pittsburgh. GUARANTEED he will make the team out of ST.

I’ll bet you a copy of Tim’s Prospect book (or Pirate Annual…our choice) he doesn’t.
