Pirates Checking on Available Hitting
Buster Olney tweeted tonight that the Pittsburgh Pirates are looking for available hitting, but that so far they haven’t found many sellers.
We heard earlier this week that the Pirates were looking at corner infielders, specifically Chase Headley, Bryan LaHair, and Kevin Youkilis. Olney tweeted that rival executives don’t expect Youkilis to be dealt right now, as he has no trade value.
John Perrotto reported that the Pirates have been pursuing Headley, and have made San Diego’s third baseman their top priority.
