Pittsburgh Pirates Claim Pitcher Off Waivers

The Pittsburgh Pirates have claimed Robert Stephenson off waivers from the Colorado Rockies. 

Stephenson was recently designated for assignment by Colorado, but he will now be getting the opportunity for a fresh start in Pittsburgh. At this juncture, that's something that has to be encouraging for the seven-year veteran.

In 45 games this season with the Rockies, Stephenson had a 2-1 record and 6.04 ERA.
