Remember the Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher who baffled the Pirates? Well, Neal Huntington does. In case you don’t here is the video from that game.
Looking at the stats, Koji Uehara is one of the best relievers on the market. The Pittsburgh Pirates are reportedly interested in getting him.
The O’s setup man gets $3 million this year, and has a vested $4 million dollar option for next season with 15 more appearances. Sound good to you? Sounds great to me for the right price. But it sounds opposite of a Huntington built bullpen.
Here are a few quick videos from YouTube to give you an idea what the relief pitcher can do. The Bucs face competition, as one would expect, in acquiring the reliever.
