Pirates Claim Chan Ho Park

No details obviously, but none are needed.  The Pirates now have Chris Resop and Chan Ho Park. I'd guess Steven Jackson and Justin Thomas go down, but none of what we've seen except Evan Meek and Joel Hanrahan is going to be terribly missed.  I saw Resop's two awful innings with Atlanta, and they were really, really awful.  Still, small sample sizes and all, so we'll see how he does in his new digs.

UPDATE by Charlie: The Pirates have designated Jackson for assignment and moved Steve Pearce to the 60-day DL to make room for Resop and Park. Park gives the Pirates a bunch of flexibility in that he can pitch for long stretches if needed, but he's a bad pitcher, and his career has been on life support since 2001. He might have a better shot at modest success in the National League, though, since he pitched reasonably well for the Dodgers and Phillies in 2008 and 2009 before flopping with the Yanks. I don't hate the idea of claiming him, but it's nothing to celebrate.
