The Chicago White Sox have claimed right-hander Daniel Moskos from the Pittsburgh Pirates and optioned him to Triple-A, the team has announced.

The Pirates designated Moskos for assignment last week to make room on their roster for Eric Fryer.

Moskos was selected 4th overall in the 2007 MLB Draft. He started his career in Rookie ball as a 21-year-old during the 2007 and was quickly promoted to the Pirates’ Low-A affiliate.

In his first full season of professional baseball, Moskos spent the year with Pittsburgh’s High-A club. Over his 29 appearances, including 20 starts, the left-hander maintained an ERA and WHIP of 5.95 and 1.514.

Moskos spent the next two years with the Pirates Double- and Triple-A clubs before making his major league debut last season. Over his 31 appearances with the Pirates, he posted an ERA and WHIP of 2.96 and 1.562 with 4.1 SO/9 and 3.3 BB/9.

Prior to his designation, the 26-year-old had maintained an ERA and WHIP of 3.86 and 1.500 this season with the Pirates Triple-A affiliate.
