Pirates Announce Duke Welker as the PTBNL For Justin Morneau

The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced that Duke Welker is the PTBNL going to the Minnesota Twins in the Justin Morneau trade. This isn’t news, as we knew about this back when the trade was made. Welker couldn’t be traded during the season due to the waiver process, and had to wait until the season was over and the waiver trading period was finished. The Pirates sent Alex Presley and Welker to the Twins in the deal.
