The Toronto Blue Jays claimed Wil Ledezma today, as the Bucco bullpen options from the left side continue to shrink.
Ledezma, who will be 30 in a couple of weeks, who was signed to a split $700K/$300K deal, has pitched for six teams in an eight year career, with a lifetime line of 15-25 with a 5.26 ERA and 277 K in 390-1/3 innings.
This leaves the Pirates with Danny Moskos and Tony Watson on the 40-man roster as LH relievers. Justin Thomas and Donnie Veal are minor-league roster options.
Lefties remaining unsigned in free agency are Joe Beimel, Tim Byrdak, Randy Flores, Brian Fuentes, Mark Hendrickson, Ron Mahay, Will Ohman, Dennys Reyes, Scott Schoeneweis, Bobby Seay and Taylor Tankersley. Not a particularly overwhelming list with a couple of exceptions, but expect one or two to land in our fair city.
