Britt Reames joins the Pirates from Indianapolis; Josh Sharpless heads to the DL.
Reames is cannon fodder - he didn´t strike anyone out in the minors and is unlikely to maintain anything near the low ERA he had there - but with Shawn Chacon out and Victor Santos back in the rotation, the Pirates needed a long reliever. Reames was in Indianapolis´ starting rotation. He throws a fastball, change and curve. Here is WTM´s profile on him; perhaps Azibuck or someone else can share their thoughts on him in the comments.
