The Phillies have claimed 28 year old lefty starting pitcher Shane Youman off waivers from the Pirates. Youman pitched in 16 games (8 starts) last season for the Pirates and he was 3-5 with a 5.97 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. He has now pitched in 21 games (11 starts) in his major league career and he is 3-7 with a 5.13 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. This was a solid move for the Phillies as Youman could help them in the rotation at some point in 2008.
