Completing the series of roster moves that saw the Pirates add Drew Sutton and Eric Fryer to the 25-man roster, the Bucs have designated reliever Daniel Moskos for assignment.
Moskos was the fourth overall pick in the 2007 Major League Draft, and he became a symbol of the failures of former Bucs GM Dave Littlefield, who selected Moskos, who even then projected as a reliever, over current Orioles star Matt Wieters. It's not Moskos' fault that he isn't Wieters', obviously, but the Pirates attempted to draft a late-inning reliever, always an incredibly bad decision at No. 4 overall, and got even less. Moskos did make it to the majors, but he hit a wall as a starter and, other than some decent pitching at Altoona in 2010 and Indianapolis in 2011, really never looked much like a reliable major-leaguer.
There's a good chance Moskos will pass through waivers and end up back in the Pirates organization.
