Pirates Acquire John Axford

One day, the Ax just fell…

The Pirates have acquired righty John Axford from the Indians, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter). Axford, 31, joined Cleveland on a one-year, $4.5MM free agent contract after being non-tendered by the Cardinals…

On the year, Axford has posted a 3.92 ERA with 10.5 K/9 but a troubling 6.5 BB/9 over 43 2/3 innings… Axford opened the season as the Cleveland closer, and picking up ten saves in the process, but lost the job with inconsistent performance…

Pittsburgh got Axford on a straight waiver claim and will be on the hook for the approximately $1.1MM that he is still owed this year, tweets ESPN.com’s Buster Olney.
