The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded left-handed pitcher Daniel Schlereth to the Detroit Tigers, according to The Blade. Schlereth will go to Toledo, which is the Triple-A team in Detroit’s system. He was previously with Detroit up until 2012, when he left as a minor league free agent. The Pirates signed him to a minor league deal this past off-season.

Schlereth had a 7.23 ERA in 18.2 innings with Indianapolis this year. On the left-handed depth chart, he was behind Adam Wilk and Andy Oliver. This move looks to be a move to give a guy a chance elsewhere. It’s most likely just for cash considerations.

  1. It was a good idea to pick him up and see if there was anything there. It’s an equally good idea to let him go now that they know there’s nothing there.
