The 0-3 San Diego Padres have acquired left-handed pitcher Brain Tallet from the Pirates, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports. Tallet will report to Triple-A initially but will probably be called up at some point this season, and just like must pitchers on the decline that land in San Diego, he will probably pitch lights out and revitalize his career.
The Pirates will either receive cash considerations or a player to be named later for Tallet.
In parts of 9 seasons with the Indians, Cardinals and Blue Jays, Tallet has a 16-25 record with a 4.79 era. He has a career 6.6 k/9 and 4.2 b/9 in 460 innings of work.
