Pirates claim lefty Garrett Olson
The Pirates have claimed left-hander Garrett Olson from the Seattle Mariners, according to the Herrald Net.
In five appearances (five innings) this spring, Olson allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits with four walks and three strikeouts.
The 27-year-old was selected in the 1st round (48th overall) in the 2005 draft by the Baltimore Orioles.
Olsen has been with the Seattle Mariners since 2009 and went 3-8 with a 5.26 ERA in 118.1 innings over the two seasons.
In order to add Olson to the roster, the Pirates have placed Kevin Hart (right shoulder surgery) on the 60-day disabled list.
