Which of the Pittsburgh Pirates' five second basemen on the 40-man roster could be the team's Opening Day option?

The Pittsburgh Pirates entered Spring Training without a definite answer at second base. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t have an answer at the keystone. Quite the opposite; if anything, they have an overabundance of potential second basemen ready to take the reigns at the position. As of right now, they have five potential options on their 40-man roster, four of which already have Major League experience.

Now that Spring Training is in full swing, we’ve gotten a brief taste of the competition thus far. Today, we are going to take a look at each of the five players on the team’s 40-man roster who are potential options at second base to start the season, their strengths, weaknesses, and the likelihood they are the Pirates’ Opening Day second baseman to open 2024.
