Comments on: Pirates Acquire Infielder Robert Andino From Mariners http://www.piratesprospects.com/2013/07/pirates-acquire-infielder-robert-andino-from-mariners.html Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

Hurdle seemed to like him in that role last year. Without him only De Jesus (who I also think is a sleeper to be called up) and Bocock would remain on the AAA roster as middle infielders. While you only need 2, having a backup would be nice.

Pedro Ciriaco anyone?

He is depth for AAA so who cares. Why people complain about these moves is beyond me. Just like people who complain about minor league deals in the offseason.

Another one doesn’t hurt, especially given how much he makes and that he doesn’t even take up a 40-man spot.

He is a minor league player and that’s it.

Maybe they think he can be utility infielder/depth next year when (if) Barmes is gone.

If he can OPS .700 against LHPs, play SS, is cheap and has years of control then he has value.

He brings no value to the Pirates other than a filler in AAA.

I don’t see anything he can help us with.

Opening a 40 man roster spot for McKenry should go to Lambo not this guy.
