Pirates Add Robert Stephenson to Active Roster

The Pittsburgh Pirates added right-handed pitcher Robert Stephenson to the active roster ahead of Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies. To make room on the 26-man roster, pitcher JT Brubaker was placed on the Paternity List.

Stephenson was picked up by the Pirates yesterday off of waivers from the Colorado Rockies. This season he has a 6.04 ERA in 45 relief appearances, with a 4.67 FIP, 1.48 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 44.2 innings. Career  over parts of seven season, the 29-year-old Stephenson has a 4.97 ERA/4.91 FIP, a 1.44 WHIP and 311 strikeouts in 298.2 innings.

This guy has parts of seven seasons of, at best, mediocrity. Why do we want him?!?

Why do they keep on claiming these pitchers instead of bringing up Bolton or Alldred?
