2016

2015

The Pirates claimed LaFromboise off waivers in late August and used the situational lefty in six games, during which he allowed one run (a homer) in 3.2 innings. He picked up a pair of holds and generally looked better than expected, but in the end, he's little more than a LOOGY. LaFromboise doesn't throw hard (89.7 mph fastball) but has a deceptive delivery. Given the Bucs' precarious bullpen situation, it's possible that LaFromboise could find himself with a bit role, but the 28-year-old hasn't shown the ability to stick in the big leagues before. The reliever pitched 10.2 frames for the Mariners in 2013, allowing seven runs.

2014

A 6-foot-4 left-hander, LaFromboise was an eighth-round pick in 2008. He finally got a shot at the big leagues last year, and in three stints with Seattle totaled 10.2 innings in relief. His low three-quarters delivery is deceptive, especially to left-handers, which has helped LaFromboise post solid strikeout rates in the minors and at Seattle. Although his upside is limited, don't judge him by last year's 5.91 ERA with the Mariners his FIP was 2.26. The 27-year-old will compete for a bullpen spot in spring training.
