Pirates Sign Nelson Figueroa

The Pirates signed right-hander Nelson Figueroa and assigned him to Triple-A, according to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (on Twitter). The Astros had released Figueroa Friday, soon after he returned from the disabled list.

Figueroa started the season in Houston's rotation, but the Astros designated him for assignment in May after he posted an 8.69 ERA with 5.3 K/9 and 5.0 BB/9 in 29 innings. The 37-year-old spent most of the season at Triple-A, where he posted a 6.50 ERA with 5.7 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 in 81 2/3 innings.
