Pirates sign Jo-Jo Reyes and Logan Kensing

The Pirates announced 2 minor league deals over the past 2 days.

Yesterday, the Bucs signed lefty starter Jo-Jo Reyes, who started 25 games between Baltimore and Toronto last year. Over 140 2/3 innings, he went 7-11 with a 5.57 ERA. Reyes should serve as AAA depth and will probably only sniff the Major League roster if there are multiple injuries.

Today, the club announced the signing of reliever Logan Kensing. Kensing is 29 and has not pitched in the Majors since 2009. Last year he split time between Bridgeport of the Atlantic League (Independent) and in AAA in the Yankees organization. Like Reyes, he will serve as AAA depth and shouldn’t spend any time in Pittsburgh barring injuries.
