PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed right-handed reliever Kyle Waldrop to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
The 27-year-old Waldrop went 0-1 with a 2.53 ERA in 17 appearances for Minnesota last season. Waldrop was initially selected with the 25th overall pick of the 2004 first-year player draft. He made his big league debut on Sept. 5, 2011 and has a career 1-1 record with a 3.62 ERA in 24 appearances.
Waldrop is Pittsburgh's 18th non-roster invitee. He will try to find a role in a revamped bullpen that is looking to replace closer Joel Hanrahan and relievers Chris Resop, Evan Meek and Juan Cruz.
