Ray King is currently playing winter ball in the DR, but he's one of several relievers the Pirates are pursuing -- including Chris Bootcheck and Derrick Turnbow, as we knew -- according to MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch. He's 34, weighs 230 lbs, and a lefty.
King was on the Nationals' Opening Day roster, but only spent 12 games with the Nats before heading to Triple A (with the affiliates of the White Sox and the Astros). Though his major league ERA has been (well) over 4.00 since 2005, in 32 games with Houston's AAA Round Rock Express he posted a 2.25 ERA.
