Bucs Claim Chris Resop Off Waivers

Cool, free pitcher. Resop had awesome stats as a starter so far this year at Class AAA Gwinnett. He's coming off a long DL stay with a strained left oblique (which may or may not have been a ghost injury, since it corresponded pretty precisely with an out clause Resop had in his contract), but before that, there were rumors that the Braves were considering getting rid of him, and fans of a bunch of teams wanted him. He has good velocity and he does a decent job keeping the ball on the ground. And oh yeah - he struck out more than a batter an inning at Class AAA as a starter. He's no sure thing, but this move is about as good as free talent acquisitions get.
