Five minor league free agents signed

The Pirates today signed left-hander Daniel Haigwood to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Haigwood went 2-3 with one save and a 3.36 ERA in 38 games (three starts) last season for Portland, the Boston Red Sox’s Double-A affiliate.

Haigwood is the fifth minor league free agent the Pirates have signed in the past three weeks. Shortstops Ashley Ponce and Jorge Bishop and lefty Julio Denis were signed as non-drafted free agents to the Venezuelan Summer League Pirates.

Outfielder Maiko Loyola was signed Nov. 21 and assigned to Triple-A Indianapolis. Loyola originally was signed by the Pirates in 2002 as an undrafted free agent. He was claimed by Tampa Bay in the 2005 Rule 5 draft.
