Grabow and Gorzelanny dealt to Cubs

Dejan is reporting that a trade sending John Grabow and Tom Gorzelanny to the Cubs is nearly complete. There are no further details, but I would hope to receive a pretty nice return. Grabow will likely end up as a Type A free agent this offseason, which could potentially net a valuable draft pick for the Pirates. Gorzelanny has pitched pretty well in Triple-A this season, and I still see him as a piece in the future rotation. Hopefully, Neal Huntington has some more tricks up his sleeve.

I will update further when more details become available. As always, watch the Twitter feed and the PBC Blog for up to the second news.

UPDATE (5:45 PM): Dejan reports that the deal is done.  Still no word on a return.  Stay tuned.

UPDATE (5:53 PM): From Jen Langosch’s Twitter feed: “Pirates deal John Grabow and Tom Gorzelanny to Cubs for RHP Kevin Hart, RHP Jose Ascanio, IF Josh Harrison”
