Tigers claim RHP Johnny Barbato off waivers from Pirates”

The Tigers have claimed righty reliever Johnny Barbato off waivers from the Pirates.

Barbato posted a 4.08 ERA and 23/18 K/BB ratio in 28.2 innings out of the Buccos' bullpen a year ago.

The Pirates acquired Barbato from the New York Yankees in exchange for minor league reliever Matt Frawley back in April of previous year. He had 41 strikeouts and 13 walks over 39.1 innings, with a 3.20 ERA and 1.17 WHIP.

The Miami native was originally drafted by the San Diego Padres in the sixth round in 2010 and was traded to the New York Yankees after the 2014 season.

He also made 27 appearances between Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Triple-A Indianapolis in 2017. In 2016, Barbato split time between Scranton and NY, going 3-2 with a 2.61 ERA in 31 appearances for the heralded club's Triple-A affiliate.
