These four free agents should be within the Pittsburgh Pirates' realistic price range, and if they were to sign some of them, could make the team a potential contender in 2024.

The off-season is far from over, and even though we are past the Winter Meetings, there are still plenty of free agents the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates want to contend next year, but they would be relying on a lot of unproven young talent. Of course, some of that young talent could boost the Pirates to a potential playoff spot, but it would be nice if they solidified their roster with some proven veterans.

As of right now, based on the Pirates’ roster and who is on the free agent market, who are some realistic free agents the Pirates could go after? On top of that, which ones could potentially make them a contender for the 2023 campaign? While I don’t think the Pirates would add all five players, adding two or three of them could significantly help the Pirates.
