Snider and Ishikawa Elect Free Agency, Guerra Sent Outright to Indianapolis

The Pittsburgh Pirates have made some room on their 40-man roster by parting ways with Travis Snider and Travis Ishikawa, while also sending Deolis Guerra outright to Indianapolis. Snider and Ishikawa elected free agency rather than accepting the outright assignment to Indianapolis. The 40-man roster is currently at 42, though it still includes upcoming free […]

Giles: Pirates Need Timely Contributions From Depth Players

With less than 20 games remaining in the season, the Pirates find themselves fighting the Cardinals for the NL Central title (again), while also attempting to fend off the Cubs for home field advantage in the Wild Card game should they fail to catch St. Louis. As Tim discussed the other day, this is perhaps the […]

First Pitch: The Pirates Are About to Have a Really Good...

The Pirates have seen some struggles from their bench throughout the year. At the start of the calendar year it looked like they could have a very strong bench. They had Jung-ho Kang, Corey Hart, Sean Rodriguez, and Travis Snider — four guys who had either been starters for periods of time in the recent past, […]

Travis Snider Will Sign Minor League Deal With Pirates

According to Chris Cotillo, the Pittsburgh Pirates are going to sign Travis Snider to a minor league deal. That will allow the team to add him without dropping anyone else at this point from the 40-man roster. Snider started off strong this season, but that ended quickly and he hasn’t hit much since mid-April. He […]

If you don’t know the connection, it’s basically a trade tree full of buy low/sell high […]

First Pitch: Revisiting the Steal That Was the Travis Snider Trade

My original plan for tomorrow was to head up to Morgantown to cover the West Virginia Black Bears for their next four games. But that plan changed tonight when I realized two things. 1. Stephen Tarpley, who I haven’t seen pitch since early in extended Spring Training, is starting for the Power. 2. Seth McGarry, […]

First Pitch: The Travis Snider Trade Doesn’t Really Look Like a...

The Travis Snider trade was a very controversial move. The Pirates took a gamble by dealing Snider, coming off a big season where he finished strong in the second half.
