With the 40-man roster full for the Pittsburgh Pirates, there are roster moves coming that will see players removed from the roster
Roster moves are coming from the Pittsburgh Pirates. Their 40-man roster is currently full, but they still have 10+ prospects who will need to be added to the 40-man roster to prevent them from being exposed in the Rule 5 Draft.
Additionally, the team will need to clear 40-man roster spots for players they add this offseason. While they likely will not be super active with player acquisition this offseason, the Pittsburgh Pirates will still look to add to their starting rotation, bullpen and potentially the infield before Opening Day.
