The Pittsburgh Pirates should consider still pursuing these three free agents before Grapefruit League play begins

In recent days, the Pittsburgh Pirates have been the center of trade rumors. Rumors have been swirling around the Pirates and Miami Marlins surrounding starting pitcher Edward Cabrera.

If the Pirates do end up pulling the trigger on a player like Cabrera, it would mark a point where they are nearing a playoff-caliber team. Any good team needs depth throughout the roster, and the Pirates aren't willing to pay much. So, it wouldn't be surprising if they added depth for quite cheap. While these three players won't be the most expensive, they won't be the cheapest.

In the movie Moneyball, you need depth on the roster that helps create runs by reaching bases. These three players would add enough on-base appearances to help the team possibly reach the postseason.
