The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed infielder Jared Goedert to a minor league deal, according to Ken Rosenthal. Goedert spent seven years in the Cleveland farm system, splitting the 2012 season between Double-A and Triple-A. In Triple-A last year he hit for a .279/.331/.460 line in 326 at-bats with 14 homers. Goedert turns 28 next season, and hasn’t played in the majors yet. He will likely serve as depth in the upper levels, taking the place of someone like Anderson Hernandez, who recently departed as a minor league free agent.

  1. Have seen Goedert a bunch in Cols. Have always liked him. Strong, doesn’t embarass himself at the corners in the IF & OF…actually pretty good at 1B. …and he doesn’t strike out a lot for as much power as he gives you. Huntington park dimensions favor lefties a little and still hit homers there. Not really sure why he has never gotten a cup of coffee. He’s a vey slight upgrade over Hague and Clement.
