Baseball Trade Values has become a popular site for baseball fans to create mock trades, so what are some Pittsburgh Pirates trades from the site?

The Pittsburgh Pirates already made a notable trade as the trade deadline quickly approaches. They sent Daniel Vogelbach to the New York Mets in exchange for rookie reliever Colin Holderman. However, the Pirates should be far from done making moves.

The team has a handful of short-term veterans that should garner some attention around baseball. Most are only controlled through this year, and a few are controlled through 2023, but overall they should be able to find some potential suitors and get some decent prospects back. When playing around with mock trades, most fans use the site Baseball Trade Values.

Baseball Trade Values has become popular in the baseball-sphere with its trade simulator. This gives value to every player and lets fans make mock trades. Today, I want to look at some of those simulated trades. The first three we will look at are from other site users, and the fourth trade we’ll examine was one I created through the simulator.

Now keep in mind that Baseball Trade Values is far from a perfect tool. Values don’t change based on what a team needs, and I’m sure there are plenty of player values that you and I would disagree with. However, that doesn’t detract from having fun with the website and playing around with its main feature.

With that being said, let’s look at some mock Pittsburgh Pirates trades that were thrown through Baseball Trade Value’s trade simulator.
