The Pittsburgh Pirates can always use depth, and these five minor leaguers recently elected free agency, and could be had on a minor league deal.
Minor league depth is something every team needs. It’s the last line of defense on a team’s depth chart. Even for teams with a deep roster, it’s better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. These players may not even play in the big leagues, but could be considered solid options to store away at Triple-A. A ton of players just recently elected minor league free agency too.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are a team in need of depth. After letting go a handful of Triple-A players via waivers, and also seeing a handful of their own minor leaguers hit minor league free agency, they’d stand to benefit from maybe exploring the minor league free agent market to fill out their depth chart throughout the farm system via non-guaranteed deals. In no way are these players the Pirates’ best options, but I think they would serve as quality depth.
