In other news, the M's picked up Mike Koplove today from the Pirates. Koplove's a soon-to-be 33 year old who's spent the last few years in the minors, but as a righty with a decent fastball, a slider, and a sidearm delivery, he's useful as a specialist, and over his ML career he's held right-handed bats to a .240/.289/.327 line with a 3.9 K/BB. For a no-risk minor league addition, he's pretty interesting.
