Pirates looking for 2019 draft picks
« on: 28 Jul 2018 4:36:18 PM »
Pirates are willing to exchange any of handful of players for 2019 draft picks. Players include:

Socrates Brito (VG def in LF/RF - having a very nice season at AAA)

Dan Palka - finally getting a chance to play this season in Chcago - prototypical 1B/LF/RF/DH guy

Tyler Duffey - moved to Minnesota bullpen - one of those guys whose FIP is better than his ERA

Miguel Almonte - hard throwing SP/RP - on DL this season

Adam Lind - no description required - a well-known quantity

Blake Parker - getting some saves the the Angels this year. Traditionally has backward platoon splits

Aaron Barrett - Pirates Mr. Lucky this season. Has 7 wins & 2 saves with a sub 3.00 ERA

Jaime Garcia - pitching well for the Pirates this year. Would be willing to provide salary relief for future seasons

Trading deadline is Tuesday!!
