Pirates Continue to Discuss Trading Hanrahan

Pirates Continue to Discuss Trading Hanrahan

Prior to signing Jason Grilli, there were rumors that the Pittsburgh Pirates were shopping Joel Hanrahan. After the signing of Grilli, a Hanrahan deal only made more sense. Jayson Stark reports that the team continues to talk about dealing Hanrahan after the signing.

I've seen the Dodgers and Tigers mentioned many times as potential matches. That's a key term here, as Stark isn't saying the Dodgers and Tigers have talked with the Pirates. So far we've heard a rumor that the Pirates and Dodgers have discussed Hanrahan, but nothing about the Tigers outside of connecting the dots.

UPDATE 4:04 PM: John Perrotto has two updates on Twitter.
