Pittsburgh Pirates Sign Pitcher

Joining the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Pirates have signed pitcher Daniel Zamora to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Zamora brings with him 22 major league innings of experience, spread across three seasons, in which he's posted a 4.50 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 27 strikeouts. He's spent time with the New York Mets and the Seattle Mariners.

The twenty-nine-year-old spent the majority of last season with Triple-A Tacoma, recording a decent 3.86 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, with 71 strikeouts across 63 innings of work. He made one start, 50 relief appearances, converted three saves and held a 4-2 record.

Zamora will provide some bullpen depth for the Pirates, and he has a good shot at making the Opening Day roster.

He is a former 40th-round pick by the Pirates in the 2015 MLB Draft.
