Pirates Claim Chris Leroux From Marlins

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.
