Stoffel signed a minor league contract with the Pirates on Wednesday that includes an invite to spring training, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Stephen Nesbitt reports.

Stoffel has never pitched in the majors, despite being 28 years old. His strikeout rate has ticked up in recent seasons, however, so he could have a chance of making the Pirates' bullpen and serving as a low-leverage reliever out of spring training.
