ANALYSIS
After coming over from Philadelphia on a waiver claim, Rios went on to make nine appearances out of the Indianapolis bullpen, posting a 2.35 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB over 15.1 innings. He struggled mightily both at Triple-A and in the majors with the Phillies, leading to his DFA, but Rios is only 26 and throws 96 mph on average with his fastball. The Pirates will give him a look down the stretch to see if there's something there.
