Per the Pirates official Twitter, the club has picked up Wirfin Obispo off of waivers from the Braves and assigned him to Triple-A Indianapolis. The Braves had designated Obispo for assignment yesterday, creating room for Shae Simmons on the roster.
Obispo, 29, posted a 4.66 ERA with a 21/12 K/BB ratio in 19 1/3 innings with Triple-A Gwinnett. While the Pirates may not use Obispo in the majors right away, he’ll serve as bullpen depth for the club after they traded Bryan Morris to the Marlins earlier today.
