Pirates re-signed RHP Collin Balester to a minor league contract.
Balester is still rebuilding arm strength following his June 2013 Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. He should be close to full health by the start of spring training in 2015 but will likely struggle to crack the Pirates' Opening Day roster. Oct 15 - 5:37 PM
