Pirates NEWS View All  2016 MLB Draft Guide Is Here!

A.J.Schugel has cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis.

It is unlikely you were banking on Schugel to bolster your fantasy bullpen this season, but you can now cross him off your cheat sheet. He is not a strikeout master, and slots in as a middle/long reliever, so simply ignore him for fantasy purposes.
