Pittsburgh Pirates: Former Players That Are Currently Free Agents
There are a handful of former Pittsburgh Pirates on the free agent market, but where do they stand after last season and leaving the Bucs?
The Pittsburgh Pirates have had many players come and go over the past few years. You have some notable names like José Quintana, Jameson Taillon, and Adam Frazier, and less memorable ones like Yu Chang, Derek Holland, Chris Archer, and Jordan Lyles. But one thing all these players have in common is that they’re on the free-agent market.
There are always a ton of free agents some Pirates fans will likely remember, and others they don’t. Today, I want to look at every free agent who once played in a Pittsburgh Pirate uniform. Don’t take this as the Pirates should sign these players, but as a list of former players now on the market.
Also, note that this only includes Pirates that played at least one entire season with the team. Honorable mentions include Guillermo Heredia, Phil Gosselin, Yu Chang, Jake Marisnick, Jose Quintana, Jordan Lyles, Chris Archer, Derek Holland, Manny Banuelos, Roberto Perez, Keone Kela, and Heath Hembree.
With that all out of the way, let’s start in the infield and make our way to the bullpen.
