The Milwaukee Brewers announced on Tuesday afternoon that they have claimed right-handed pitcher Rob Scahill off waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates. Scahill was designated for assignment when the Pirates claimed Eric Fryer back on July 3rd.

Scahill had a 4.41 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP in 16.1 innings over 15 appearances this season. Last year, he posted a 2.64 ERA in 30.2 innings over 28 appearances, though he had a 1.60 WHIP, so the ERA was a bit deceiving. The Pirates acquired him in November 2014 in exchange for minor league pitcher Shane Carle.

  1. Well isn’t this a change of scenery? The Pirates used to dumpster dive to get the ballteam a little better. Now, other bottom feeders are waiting for us to dispose of players. It feels good to be in the thick of things and to have a very talented farm system.

  2. Oooh, I think Scahill has some good innings ahead of him.

    Just hope its not against the black & gold.
