Pirates Add Bass, Carlin, Myrow

The Pirates reached agreements with pitcher Brian Bass, catcher Luke Carlin, and outfielder Bryan Myrow on minor league deals, according to a team press release.

Bass, 28, posted a 4.90 ERA, 5.6 K/9, and 4.6 BB/9 in 86.3 relief innings last year.  He allowed 11 home runs in that time despite an excellent 61.4% groundball rate.  The Orioles non-tendered him after the season.

Carlin, 29, hit .321/.430/.481 for the D'Backs' Triple A club.  They still chose to outright him in early December.  Myrow, 33, hit .307/.419/.496 for the Triple A affiliates of the Pirates and White Sox.  Both players have had multiple Triple A stints, but their 15% walk rates in '09 are intriguing.

  1. Looks like the Pirates signed a couple of AAAA players in Carlin and Myrow. Any chance either of these guys could be the next Garrett Jones?

    Bass is the only one of these players who has a shot of playing on the big club.

      Your right! As of now Bass is the onlyone to make it to the bigs

  3. Carlin has a chance too, Doumit is sure to go down with another injury at some point this year. The Bucs needed some catching depth in the system, Sanchez was only last years number one pick, another year or two of seasoning and he’ll be ready for the show.

    Wow, those are some gag-worthy peripherals. At least he can induce ground balls.
