The Pirates claimed righty Chris Resop off waivers from the Braves, according to David O'Brien of Atlanta Journal-Constitution (on Twitter). The Braves had requested outright waivers on Resop on Monday.
Resop disappointed in his brief stint with the Braves. However, the 27-year-old posted a 2.09 ERA, 10.0 K/9, and 3.5 BB/9 with four home runs allowed in 82 Triple A innings this year (15 starts). This is a nice pickup for the Pirates, who were known to be trolling for pitching after trading away several key members of their bullpen.
