Pirates Claim Anthony Claggett

The Pirates claimed pitcher Anthony Claggett off waivers from the Yankees, according to a press release.  The Yanks had designated him for assignment ten days ago.  Claggett, a 25-year-old righty, was acquired by the Yanks from Detroit in the Gary Sheffield deal in November of '06.  Upon reaching Triple A this year, Claggett's strikeout rate took a large drop to 4.7 per nine innings.
