The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced the signing of right-handed pitcher Josh Wall, who has been invited to Spring Training. They also announced the Wilkin Castillo deal we heard earlier in the week and they also extended him an invite to Spring Training.
Wall was a waiver pickup last year from the Angels in late May and he cleared waivers in August, getting dropped from the 40-man roster, but remaining in the organization. The 28-year-old had a 2.91 ERA in 28 relief appearances for Indianapolis, striking out 35 batters in 34 innings. He has pitched 15 games in the Majors spread out over three different seasons and has a 15.15 ERA in 13.2 innings.
