The Atlanta Braves have announced that Wilfredo Boscan has been claimed off waivers from the Pirates.
Boscan signed a minor league deal with the Pirates prior to last season. In 126 innings pitched with AAA Indianapolis, he posted a 3.07 ERA. This past offseason, the Pirates re-signed Boscan to another minor league contract. He’s spent most of this year pitching for Indianapolis, posting an ERA of 3.75 in 84 innings of work. Boscan had a 6.46 ERA in six games with the Pirates, one of which was a spot start. He was designated for assignment last week when Ryan Vogelsong was activated from the disabled list.
