Pirates | Kyle Farnsworth signs

The Pittsburgh Pirates signed free-agent RP Kyle Farnsworth (Rays) to a minor league deal Friday, Aug. 16, and assigned him to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: With Jason Grilli (foreram) sidelined, Mark Melancon has done a nice job filling in as the new closer. Farnsworth could come up to the majors and provide another late-inning setup arm, but don't expect him to see any save chances before Grilli returns.
