Pirates Pick Up Joe Martinez For Javier Lopez

Martinez is a 27-year-old starting pitcher who has spent most of the season with Class AAA Fresno. He’s nothing special, but he knows how to get Class AAA batters out, so there’s some chance he could step into the Pirates’ rotation and pitch reasonably well. He’s also a big groundball pitcher, which should prevent him from getting lit up, Daniel McCutchen-style.
