With the 2023 MLB trade deadline quickly approaching the Rum Bunter Radio crew is here to discuss the Carlos Santana trade, who could be next, and more!
One of the Pittsburgh Pirates top trade chips in veterans Carlos Santana is already off the board as the Buccos made their first big trade splash of the regular season on Thursday night dealing Santana to the Milwaukee Brewers for 18-year-old, former highly touted international signee, Johnny Sevirino.
The crew reviews this decision and if the return matches the production the “Crew” is receiving in Carlos Santana.
While selling was not the plan this season for Pittsburgh, it appears to be a good year for it with many teams around the same win total. How drastic will the front office go this deadline?
Open to trading Pittsburgh native and Pirates all-star David Bednar? Ace Mitch Keller who has found himself over the past two years? Standout backend reliever Colin Holderman?
These questions will be answered by Ben Cherrington early next week, but as Jon Heyman’s tweet noted earlier this week, teams around the league are certainly asking about the Pirates’ top arms.
Batten down the hatches, clear the decks and enjoy this Rum Bunter Radio MLB Trade Deadline Special!
