J.A. Happ joins Pirates, LHP LaFromboise sent back to minors

CINCINNATI (AP) Left-hander J.A. Happ joined the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday and threw in the bullpen, getting ready to join a rotation that'll need him for at least a few weeks.

The Pirates optioned left-hander Bobby LaFromboise back to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday to open a roster spot for Happ, who was acquired from Seattle in a trade the previous day. The 32-year-old starter arrived from Minnesota, where the Mariners are playing over the weekend.

"I had no idea, so I was surprised," Happ said. "I'm happy to be here. It's an exciting time here. You see them build and build and build over the years, and now everyone sees where they're at."
