Pirates sign Jose Veras to minor league deal

The Pirates have come to terms with reliever Jose Veras on a minor league deal, Enrique Rojas reported this afternoon. Veras is, believe it or not, a hard-throwing reliever with control problems. He’s coming off of a pretty good season with the Marlins, though, where he struck out more than a batter an inning and had one of the better groundball rates of his career. He’ll get an invite to camp and like DJ Carrasco last year, it’s hard to imagine him not making the team.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
