The Pittsburgh Pirates are close to a deal with catcher/first baseman Jose Morales, according to Ken Rosenthal. The deal would likely be of the minor league variety. Morales has 218 career at-bats in the majors, mostly with the Minnesota Twins.  In that time he has a .289/.365/.344 line. In his career at AAA he has a .304/.367/.405 line in 1049 at-bats. Morales has thrown out 34% of base runners in the majors. He turns 29 in February.  Assuming it would be a minor league deal, it doesn’t look like a bad move to add catching depth.

  1. I like the fact that the Pirates are trying to be active. No matter what moves they make, stay active and something good will come!
