Will they stay or will they go? One last preview and prediction of the 2020 MLB trade deadline for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
At 4:00 PM EST on Monday afternoon, the MLB trade deadline will arrive. Typically, the trade deadline is on July 31st. However, due to the delay to the start of the season due to the coronaviurs pandemic this year’s trade deadline is scheduled for August 31st. Entering deadline day the question is – how active will the Pittsburgh Pirates be?
Entering the trade deadline, the Pittsburgh Pirates, as we have covered here on the site, are expected to be one of the more active teams in baseball. In fact, they have already started to sell this past Friday when they traded Jarrod Dyson to the Chicago White Sox.
Even with Dyson gone, the team still has plenty of potential trade chips. This includes both pitchers and position players. Being one of the few true sellers in all of MLB, and the only true seller in the National League, the market will likely favor the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday.
So, now, we will take a look at players from the Pittsburgh Pirates who could potentially be traded. We will do this while answering the simple question – will they stay or will they go?
