Pirates Designate Daniel Moskos For Assignment

This is, of course, the missing piece in the Slaten/Hague/Sutton/Fryer series of moves, but I thought it deserved its own thread, since, you know, 2007 draft and all. This tells us what the Pirates think of Moskos, ultimately. Moskos struck out 11 batters and walked eight in 14 innings for Indianapolis this year. Other than a decent little run as a reliever at Altoona and Indianapolis in 2010 and 2011, he never did much of anything to show he could be a productive major leaguer, let alone to justify the Pirates' decision to select him fourth overall in 2007. Not that that's his fault, of course. It must make life hard when you're only with a team because of a staggeringly stupid decision.

Anyway, he's 26 now and doesn't have much in the way of stuff or a minor-league pedigree. My guess is that he'll clear waivers.

Oh well. Gnash your teeth over Matt Wieters in the comments!
