The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired pitcher Kyle Keller from the Los Angeles Angels for cash.

What does it give the Pittsburgh Pirates
In Keller, the Pirates get a reliever who will turn 28 years old later this month. Still, he has some untapped big-league upside so this is a good move for the rebuilding Bucs.

What does it give the Los Angeles Angels
The Angels recently designated Keller for assignment, so they were at least able to get some cash back for his services. He was a bit of a disappointment in Los Angeles.

Fantasy impact
For now, Keller can remain on the waiver wire/free agency in virtually all fantasy formats. However, he has a chance to factor into Pittsburgh's bullpen plans at some point.
