Pirates Claim Steven Jackson

The Pirates have added another Yankees pitcher, claiming righty reliever Steven Jackson off waivers today according to Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  Injured pitcher Jimmy Barthmaier was released to make room.

Jackson, 27, posted a 1.88 ERA in 14.3 Triple A innings this year.  This is his third stint at that level.  He'd joined the Yanks in the Randy Johnson-Arizona deal, and was the last remnant of that 2007 trade.  Jackson works with a low-90s sinker, according to Baseball America.
