It needs some consistent offense. What about Kendrys Morales from SEA? He’d be a 2-3 month rental so he wouldn’t cost a ton. He’s a switch hitter with some power and a decent OBP that could play OF or 1B

If they are, we really made a mistake drafting Taillon over Machado.

The Pirates seem to have some decent internal options that could work out depending on the situation. Morton, Oliver, Mazzaro, and Justin Wilson have experience as starters, and Black, Welker, Jeanmar Gomez or Contreras could be valuable relievers down the stretch. Of course I’m assuming some successful rehabs and strong MLB debuts.

Rather see that in a trade than an arm. I think we have internal pitching options

I have seen him on four different occasions so far this season in Altoona,and his first two starts were much better than the last two I saw. Also,last night he had to miss a turn here at home due to a stiff neck.

But he’s also never put up more than 1.6 WAR.

Solid, but not spectacular player. The more I think about it, the more I’d just let someone else take Norris. But I wouldn’t burn down PNC if they did acquire him.

Which of unproven corner outfielders concerns you more, Snider or Marte?

I think Marte will be fine over the long haul, and would probably benefit from some time in the 7 or 8 spot.

The Bucs should be concerned about running Snider out in RF 6 days a week while the Reds and Cards send out Jay Bruce and Beltran.
