The Pittsburgh Pirates claimed 25-year-old RHP Anthony Claggett off waivers from the Yankees.
Claggett, obtained from Detroit in the Gary Sheffield trade in November 2006, had a 33.75 ERA in 2.2 innings in two appearances for the Yankees. He also was 7-7 with a 3.07 ERA in 34 relief appearances and five starts for Triple-A Scranton.
The Pirates now have Claggett, Ross Ohlendorf, Steven Jackson, Dan McCutchen, Jose Tabata and Jeff Karstens.
There has to be a way they’ll agree to take Kei Igawa.
UPDATE, 9:14 p.m.: As an alert reader pointed out, the Pirates also have RHP Eric Hacker, another former Yankee. So the Pirates have six former Yankees on their 40-man roster. Amazing.
