Throughout the 2011-2012 off-season, Kevin Creagh will be looking at players that have been rumored to be non-tender or trade candidates, based primarily off of MLB Trade Rumors' Off-Season Outlook series. The review isn't to suggest that the players are being pursued by the Pittsburgh Pirates. The purpose of the series is to explore the potential options on the market to see who might be a good fit for the 2012 roster.
Continuing on with the series of posts related to trade targets from the potential non-tendered player pool, my search has led me to look at starting pitching. Perhaps you may have heard that the Pittsburgh Pirates decided to not pick up Paul Maholm's $9.75 million option for the year 2012. I know... it didn't garner much traction around here, either.
