The Bucs have claimed pitcher Leroux from the Marlins, and have made room for him by designating Brian Bass for assignment. Leroux is 26 and is 6-foot-6. He throws hard (with an average fastball velocity of a bit under 94 MPH this season) and has put up consistently good peripheral numbers throughout the minors, usually while racking up grounders. That definitely sounds like a pitcher who's worth a waiver claim. He struggled a bit in AAA and in the majors this year, but continued to post good peripherals while doing so.
