The Pirates have announced that pitcher Trey Haley has been signed to a one-year deal.
Haley was a highly touted prep pitcher upon being drafted by the Cleveland Indians in 2008. The 25-year-old right-hander made 43 appearances combined with AA Akron and AAA Columbus last season, posting a 2.45 ERA along with a K/9 of 9.8. Haley is a real flamethrower, as he can reach 100 mph with the fastball, and can also throw a plus curveball. With having two options remaining, Haley could still be sent to AAA Indianapolis, despite the Major League deal.
