The Pirates acquired right-handed reliever Rob Scahill from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for minor league righty Shane Carle.
By adding Scahill, the Pirates have 37 players on their 40-man roster.
Scahill, 27, went 1-0 with a 4.80 ERA in 12 appearances with the Rockies this year. He was 2-3 with two saves and a 4.32 ERA in 41 games with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Scahill was designated for assignment Nov. 3, when the Rockies claimed minor league pitcher Jorge Rondon.
Carle was the Pirates’ 10th-round pick in the 2013 draft.
