The Pirates have claimed RHP Enyel De Los Santos off waivers from the Philadelphia Phillies. In 26 relief appearances with the Phillies this season, De Los Santos posted a 1-1 record, a 6.75 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 28.0 innings of work.
De Los Santos struck out at least one batter in 22 of his 26 games this season and averaged 13.5 strikeouts per 9.0ip.
The 25-year-old native of the Dominican Republic made his Major League debut with the Phillies in 2018 and has made a total of 38 appearances (three starts) in his three seasons in the big leagues.
To make room on the 40-man roster for De Los Santos, LHP Steven Brault has been transferred to the 60-day injured list.
