Trade Rumors: Pitching, Andy Marte

The Pirates are trying to trade Marte to a team that will use him in the majors.

Two trade rumors, probably not related to each other, but neither one big enough for their own post:

Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer reported that the Pirates were trying to trade Andy Marte to a team who would use him in the majors.

-Dejan Kovacevic reports that the Pirates are looking hard at an external move, and notes that they are looking for pitching.  Granted, this doesn’t necessarily mean an external move could come via trade.  Just for reference, a few pitchers who have been designated for assignment recently: Ryan Rowland-Smith and Manny Acosta.  Guys who have been recently released: Jeff Suppan, Carlos Silva, Doug Mathis, Ron Mahay, and Scott Proctor.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.

Acosta would be a nice pickup if something could be worked out. Low salary, proven ability.
Have no insider info, but Lucas May would be a good catcher to acquire if possible. Royals DFA’d him. Good bat, still young, has power., able to throw out would be base stealers.
Guess around noon or so, the questions will be answered.

Derek Morrow

Oliver Perez signed with the Nationals

I’m kinda surprised they haven’t considered Mahay.
