Top Pirates News

  • Pirates' Carlos Santana: Signs with Pirates

    Santana has agreed to a one-year, $6.7 million deal with the Pirates, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Santana played for both the Mariners and Royals during the 2022 season, finishing the year with a .202/.316/.276 slash line. The 31-year-old will be a prime candidate to play DH for Pittsburgh due to his plate discipline and power.

  • Pirates' Hoy Park: DFA'd by Pittsburgh

    Park was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Tuesday.

    Park played in 23 games for the Pirates last season and had a .216/.276/.373 slash line in 60 plate appearances. He was removed from the 40-man roster to make room for Lewin Diaz, who was claimed off waivers.

  • Pirates' Lewin Diaz: Grabbed by Pirates

    The Pirates claimed Diaz off waivers from the Marlins on Tuesday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

    The 26-year-old has landed in a spot where he could have a realistic path to playing time, as his primary competition at first base and designated hitter will be players like Ji-Man Choi (elbow) and Miguel Andujar. Nothing in Diaz's track record thus far suggests he deserves regular playing time at a key offensive position, however. In 112 career major-league games, he's hit .181/.227/.340.

  • Pirates' Nathan Webb: Inks MiLB deal with Pittsburgh

    Webb agreed to a minor-league contract with the Pirates on Sunday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    The Royals recently declined to tender the 25-year-old a contract for 2023, but it didn't take long for him to latch on elsewhere via a minor-league deal. Webb received an invite to big-league spring training but is a longshot to make the Opening Day roster.

  • Pirates' Dauri Moreta: Shipped to Pittsburgh

    The Reds traded Moreta to the Pirates on Friday in exchange for infielder Kevin Newman.

    Moreta was on the shuttle between Triple-A and the majors throughout last season, making 35 appearances for the big-league team (one start) and another 28 for Louisville. The 26-year-old right-hander averaged 96 mph with his fastball in the majors last season and can pull the string with the slider and changeup around 85-88 mph.

  • Pirates' Miguel Andujar: Avoids arbitration

    Andujar agreed to a one-year, $1.525 million contract with the Pirates on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Andujar will be looking to revive his career in Pittsburgh after fizzling out with the Yankees. He burst onto the scene and finished as the runner up for AL Rookie of the Year in 2018 (behind Shohei Ohtani), but Andujar went on to post a .581 OPS over the subsequent four seasons. He projects as the Pirates' primary designated hitter at this stage in the offseason.

  • Pirates' Manny Banuelos: Designated for assignment

    Banuelos was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Tuesday.

    Banuelos appeared in 35 games between the Yankees and Pirates last year and had a 4.39 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 42:21 K:BB across 41 innings. He was acquired by Pittsburgh in July but won't stick on the 40-man roster through the offseason.

  • Pirates' Junior Fernandez: DFA'd by Pittsburgh

    Fernandez was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Tuesday.

    The 25-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Pirates in early September and was called up to the majors for three appearances during the final week of the season. Fernandez had a 2.41 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 14:12 K:BB across 18.2 innings between Pittsburgh and St. Louis but won't retain his spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Pirates' Jeremy Beasley: Loses spot on 40-man roster

    Beasley was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Tuesday.

    Beasley was acquired from Toronto in early August but never saw game action for Pittsburgh. The right-hander had 4.80 ERA and 19:5 K:BB across 15 innings for the Blue Jays.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: DFA'd by Pittsburgh

    Heineman was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Tuesday.

    Heineman appeared in 62 games between the Pirates and Blue Jays last season and had a .217/.276/.268 slash line, and he won't stick on Pittsburgh's 40-man roster through the offseason.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Joins 40-man roster

    Triolo (knee) was added to Pittsburgh's 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Triolo spent the final month of 2022 on the injured list at Double-A Altoona with a hyperextended knee, but he still had a productive campaign with a .285/.378/.424 slash line and 24 steals in 112 games. The 24-year-old should move up to Triple-A Indianapolis at some point in 2023.

  • Pirates' Colin Selby: Joining 40-man roster

    Selby was added to the Pirates' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Selby spent most of 2022 at Double-A Altoona, though he was promoted late in the campaign to Triple-A Indianapolis. He had a 2.27 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 43:14 K:BB across 35.2 innings between the two levels.

  • Pirates' Endy Rodriguez: Moves to 40-man roster

    Rodriguez was added to the Pirates' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Rodriguez is one of the league's best catching prospects and finished 2022 at the Triple-A level despite beginning the season at High-A. He played in only six games at the highest level of the minors, but his .997 OPS on the season could push him toward making his MLB debut next year.

  • Pirates' Mike Burrows: Joins 40-man roster

    Burrows was added to the Pirates' 40-man roster Tuesday, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    Burrows split time between Double-A and Triple-A in 2022, putting up a 4.01 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over 94.1 innings on the season. The 23-year-old righty struggled in Triple-A, however, so Burrows will likely need more seasoning in Indianapolis before the Pirates seriously consider bringing him to their big-league roster.

  • Pirates' Ji-Man Choi: Requires elbow surgery

    Choi will undergo minor surgery on his right elbow, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    The 31-year-old was acquired by Pittsburgh from Tampa Bay on Thursday, and his new team likely already knew about the procedure when it traded for him. Choi played through the elbow issue last season and finished the campaign with a .233/.341/.388 slash line, 11 home runs and 52 RBI in 113 games, and he's expected to be healthy in time for spring training in February.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Removed from 40-man roster

    Delay cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Delay played in 57 games for Pittsburgh last season but won't retain his spot on the 40-man roster. It was the 27-year-old's first taste of the big leagues, and he had a .213/.265/.271 slash line with one home run, 11 RBI and 17 runs.

  • Pirates' Beau Sulser: Dropped from 40-man roster

    Sulser cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Sulser was claimed off waivers from Baltimore in mid-October, but he won't remain on Pittsburgh's 40-man roster through the offseason. The right-hander was also with the Pirates earlier in 2022 and had a 3.63 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 19:9 K:BB across 22.1 innings between the two teams.

  • Pirates' Blake Cederlind: Removed from 40-man roster

    Cederlind (elbow) cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Cederlind missed the start of 2022 while he completed his rehab from Tommy John surgery, but he experienced renewed soreness over the summer and required follow-up surgery in August. The 26-year-old hasn't seen game action since 2020, and it's unclear if he'll be fully healthy at the start of spring training in February.
