Wiki

José Enger Veras Romero (born October 20, 1980) is a Major League Baseball relief pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Veras was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 1998. He rose through the Tampa Bay minor league system, mostly as a starter. Veras struggled when he reached AAA, and was converted to a relief pitcher. He was released after the 2004 season, and pitched in 2005 for the Texas Rangers' AAA affiliate.

Veras signed with the Yankees before the 2006 season, which he spent most of in AAA, though he also made his major league debut, pitching 11 innings with a 4.09 ERA. Veras was injured early in 2007, but rehabbed and returned to the major leagues as a September call up.
