Pirates sign Logan Kensing

In announcing the signing of Jo-Jo Reyes to a minor league deal, the Pirates also announced that Logan Kensing will get a minor league deal and an invite to spring training. Kensing’s a reliever who’s spent most of his career with the Marlins, and he spent 2011 in the Yankees’ system. He hasn’t pitched in the Majors since 2009, as he missed all of 2010 with an injury.

Even in his unimpressive big league career, he’s managed 8 strikeouts per nine innings (to go with a very high walk and homer rate) and his fastball averages around 93 mph. Which means he’s exactly the sort of guy you’d expect the Pirates to invite to spring training to give a shot at the bullpen.

About Pat Lackey

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.
