In a corresponding move, the team designated RHP Edgar Santana for assignment.
Keller has 12 career appearances, 10 with the Marlins in 2019 and two with the Angels in 2020. His career ERA sits at 4.15.
Keller pitched for the Angels in Spring Training but failed to make the Opening Day roster and was reporting to the Angels alternate site.
Keller, who turns 28 in a few weeks, will aim to boost the bullpen depth. The Pirates bullpen has already pitched 16 innings in just their first three games of the season.
Welcome to the Pirates, Kyle Keller!
