- His fastball hits in the mid 90′s and has had control issues with his change up.
- Leroux was a catcher throughout his college years and was turned into a pitcher after being drafted.
- The right-hander is 6’6″, 226 pounds.
- Leroux is expected to join the Pirates on Tuesday at Citi field.
“He’s a big physical right-hander with arm strength,” general manager Neal Huntington said of Leroux, whose fastball sits in the low-to-mid 90s. “[He] could be a depth reliever for us, or if he clicks, [he] could be more. We thought it was a pretty reasonable chance to take on a young guy with a good arm and some upside.”
