New Pirates outfielder Xavier Paul may have finally found the place he belongs -- Pittsburgh.

Paul's mother sent this photo to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Colin Dunlap:

Xavier Paul

Paul, 26, was claimed off waivers from the Dodgers on Monday and was added to the team's roster late last night. Paul made his Pirates debut on Thursday, striking out as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning of the Pirates' 5-2 loss to the Giants.

Paul had three hits in 11 at-bats for the Dodgers before being designated for assignment to make room for Jerry Sands. Paul is a career .233/.280/.329 hitter in the big leagues in 160 plate appearances.

Thanks to Colin (@Colin_Dunlap) for the photo.
