The Pittsburgh Pirates claimed these three players off of waivers throughout the 2022 season, but they could have an impactful role on the 2023 team.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have made their fair share of waiver claims throughout the years. With an owner that usually doesn’t put up a massive payroll, the team often searches through the waiver wire to find diamonds in the rough. Usually, waiver claims don’t have that much impact, but teams occasionally will stumble upon a decent player.
The team has a few waiver claims on the 40-man roster, and there are three who could be key parts of the Pirate roster in 2023. Even if the Pirates aren’t terrible next season (which is entirely possible given the amount of talent that will be at Triple-A to start the year), these three former waiver claims may potentially be impact players.
