Huntington on Doumit, Olsen, Rodriguez

Rob Biertempfel has some updates from General Manager Neal Huntington:

The trade market for Doumit has died down.

-Trade talks for Ryan Doumit have died down, according to Huntington.  He did mention that things usually pick back up the first few weeks of the season.  I think it’s pretty much a guarantee that Doumit will open the season with the team.  As for his trade value, I don’t think that’s going to increase in a bench role.  Unless we see a ton of catching injuries around the league, I think Doumit will be sticking around for awhile.

-Scott Olsen, who has been recovering from a strained left hamstring, will be throwing a side session on Monday.  Huntington said Olsen hasn’t fallen too far behind Charlie Morton in the battle for the 5th starter job.

-Josh Rodriguez, the 2010 Rule 5 pick, hasn’t seen much playing time, but still has a chance to make the team.  Huntington said the Pirates would try to trade for him and retain his rights before they returned him to Cleveland.

I’m going to reverse my earlier stance and say that keeping Doumit is not the worst thing the Pirates could do…
