Pirates Sign Rick VandenHurk

Via WHYGAVS. He'd been with the Indians, but he'd played his entire career before this in the Marlins and Orioles organizations. He's been a starter most of his career, and he throws fairly hard (with average fastball velocities around 93 MPH both of the last two years) so he might have some fragment of upside if the Pirates tried using him as a reliever, but he probably won't be back in the majors this year.
