also i hope the prospect we got back is one of their young shortstops, they have several that have major league projection

Or do you think they just wait until tomorrow when rosters expand?

He’s a good guy but could barely hit a ball out of the infield.

NH can prepare in earnest for next year’s position player free agent bust. Retirement age guys start rethinking what they can do with an extra $2-$5MM from the generous Pirates during the offseason.
