Pirates Sign Tony Armas Jr.

Pirates GM Dave Littlefield announced today that the team has signed righty Tony Armas Jr. to a one-year deal with a club option for '08.  RotoWorld reports that Armas will make $3MM in '07 and has a $500,000 buyout for '08.  The move should thankfully push Shawn Chacon out of the rotation.

It's hard to believe Armas would represent an improvement in anyone's rotation after posting a 5.03 ERA in 154 innings last year in a National League pitchers' park.  Basically the one thing Armas has going for him is that he's on the right side of 30.  And he was traded for Pedro once.
