Pirates acquired RHP Joe Blanton from the Royals for cash considerations.
Blanton was designated for assignment by Kansas City on Tuesday to open a 40-man roster spot for new ace Johnny Cueto. Blanton had a strong 3.89 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 40/7 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings (four starts, 11 relief appearances) this season for the Royals and should be an asset as a swing man down the stretch for Pittsburgh.
