Two ex-Pirates sign minor league deals elsewhere
Monday afternoon news broke that Osvaldo Bido had signed a minor league deal with the Oakland A's. Bido became a free agent last week when he was not tendered a contract by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Bido made his MLB debut with the Pirates last season, pitching 50.2 innings in 16 outings, 9 of which were starts. The 28-year-old righty posted a 5.86 ERA, 4.10 FIP, 8.9% walk rate, and a 20.3% strikeout rate in his 50.2 innings pitched.
Also on Monday, relief pitcher Yerry De Los Santos signed a minor league deal with the New York Yankees. This came after the Pirates put De Los Santos on waivers earlier this month, a move that led to him becoming a free agent.
In 24.1 innings pitched last season De Los Santos posted a 3.33 ERA, 4.04 FIP, 12.5% walk rate, and a 17.3% strikeout rate in 24.1 innings pitched. In his MLB career, De Los Santos owns a 4.14 ERA, 4.02 FIP, 11.1% walk rate, and a 20.4% strikeout rate in 50 innings pitched.
