Bucs claim two off waivers, outright Pagnozzi

The Pirates made two pretty head-scratching waiver claims today, adding pitcher Jeremy Hefner from San Diego and catcher Brian Jeroloman from Toronto. They also outrighted catcher Matt Pagnozzi (who they added late in the season for extra depth) to Indy – he can become a minor league free agent or accept a minor league offer from the Pirates.

It’s not that Doumit is...
