The Rays have claimed Jerry Sands on waivers. As with Ryan Reid, I would have been pretty surprised if he had wound up back with the Pirates. Sands was a big disappointment in 2013, failing to hit even in Triple-A. He appeared to be one of the key pieces in the Joel Hanrahan trade at the time of the deal. Fortunately, Mark Melancon and Stolmy Pimentel have done more than enough to make that trade a great one.
