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.
