Pirates interested in Galarraga
Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune tweeted Saturday regarding the Pirates possible interest in right-hand pitcher Armando Galarragra.
“Pirates have some interest in rhp Armando Galarraga. Considering they made serious offer to [Carl] Pavano, I’d say they have the $$ for Galaragga.”
Then later, Biertempfel said:
“Regarding galarraga to Pirates, trusted source just told me, “I don’t see it happening”
Galarraga was designated for assignment by the Tigers earlier this week after the signing of Brad Penny. Known mostly for his, ‘almost perfect game’, Galarraga went 4-9 in 25 games (24 starts) with a 4.49 ERA. In 144.1 innings he walked 51 and struck out 74. The 29-year-old made $2.3 M last season.
