Upcoming Pittsburgh Pirates 40-Man Roster Decisions

The Pirates have a roster crunch coming up fast. Sure, it’s fair to question whether it matters much or not, given the excess fat permeating much of the roster. At some point, however, the front office deemed every player under contract worth while enough to employ, so it’s reasonable to assume they would at least […]

Not a Good Historical Sign Regarding Max Moroff’s Future With the...

Max Moroff isn’t in good company. The Pirates made their second round of September callups yesterday, and likely their final round when you consider that there’s no reason to keep MLB-ready prospects in the minors when the Indianapolis season is over. Moroff was not on the list of guys who was called up, despite being […]

Pirates Add Casey Sadler to Roster; Option Max Moroff and DFA...

The Pittsburgh Pirates made a surprising move to strengthen their bullpen on Monday night, adding right-handed pitcher Casey Sadler to the 25-man roster and optioning Max Moroff to Indianapolis. Sadler needed to be added to the 40-man roster first and the Pirates cleared space by designating left-handed pitcher Josh Smoker for assignment. Sadler has pitched […]

Chad Kuhl to Disabled List; Pirates Recall Max Moroff

The Pittsburgh Pirates placed right-handed pitcher Chad Kuhl on the disabled list prior to Friday’s game. They have recalled infielder Max Moroff to take his spot on the roster.

Pirates Recall Nick Kingham; Max Moroff Optioned to Indianapolis

As expected since he was sent down two weeks ago, right-handed pitcher Nick Kingham has been promoted to make tonight’s start against the San Diego Padres.

What Should the Pirates Do at Second Base and Leadoff?

PHILADELPHIA — Since starting second baseman and leadoff hitter Josh Harrison was sidelined with a broken hand, the Pirates have gone about replacing him with a combination of Adam Frazier and Sean Rodriguez. Both of those players present their own issues in that role. Frazier can hit, with a .278 career batting average and a […]

Morning Report: This is a Perfect Time For the Pirates to...

There was a time this offseason where I thought Max Moroff would be a lock for the Opening Day roster. At the very least, he would be a guy who would come up when an injury happened, and would get significant playing time if the injury was at second base. This was partially the case. […]

Facing First Losing Streak, Pirates Got Timely Depth Charge

PITTSBURGH — The Pirates had run into their first real roadblock of their 2018 season, having lost two miserable, blustery games to the Rockies at PNC Park. For Wednesday afternoon’s pleasingly sun-splashed series finale at PNC Park, not only did Clint Hurdle start with Gregory Polanco, Francisco Cervelli, Corey Dickerson and Colin Moran on the […]
