Pirates claimed RHP John Axford off revocable waivers from the Indians.
It appears that the Pirates made a claim and the Indians simply let him go. Axford, 31, owns a 3.92 ERA and 51/30 K/BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings this season. The Pirates likely won't use him in high-leverage situations initially, but he's a worthwhile flier for Pittsburgh. Aug 14 - 4:43 PM
