Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Mark Melancon deal might just be the start for the Pirates, who are looking to fill their need in the starting rotation. We have heard some names over the last week or so, mostly pitchers with the Rays, with Chris Archer, Matt Moore and Jake Odorizzi being named at various points. We also heard Nathan Eovaldi from the Yankees and Hector Santiago from the Angels, so there are multiple possibilities we have heard and probably dozens more names they have inquired about. We will update this article if anything comes up today.
