Pirates Hope To Retain Meek

Dejan Kovacevic fills us in on the Pirates’ attempts to retain 25 year-old reliever Evan Meek.

Meek was a Rule 5 pick who the Bucs just couldn’t hide in their big league pen all year.  Meek was designated for assignment yesterday but the Pirates are trying to make a deal with the Rays rather than return him.

Baseball America says that Meek "uses a low-90s fastball that has good sink and run to pick up strikeouts and groundballs."  As you might guess, control has been an issue.
