Continuing in our periodic look at potential trade targets that have been reported by other media sources, let’s turn our attention to a recent piece by Ken Rosenthal for Fox Sports. In this post, Rosenthal discusses how the White Sox are receiving a lot of interest on two of their top pitchers — John Danks and Gavin Floyd.
Today on Major League Baseball Trade Rumors (MLBTR), there was a piece about how the Oakland A’s are willing to listen to offers on any of their players. Is there a chance that the Pirates can benefit from this event?
Continuing on with the series of posts related to trade targets from the potential non-tendered player pool, my search has led me to look at starting pitching. Chris Volstad from the Miami Marlins could be a target to acquire.
The Pirates may be able to explore the potentially non-tendered player market for additions to the 2012 major league team.
The Pirates have 4 pitchers in their system right now that profile as #1 ace-level pitchers, something they have not been able to cultivate through their system in a very long time.
