As the MLB Winter Meetings prepare to start, what does the Pittsburgh Pirates 40-man roster currently look like?

Sunday evening, the 2023 MLB Winter Meetings will kick off in Nashville. The Winter Meetings not only lead to teams across baseball making plenty of trades and free agent signings, but they also set the table for moves that happen in the ensuing weeks. During the Winter Meetings, you will typically see team's 40-man rosters change. Will that happen with the Pittsburgh Pirates?

Thus far, the Pirate offseason is off to a slow, frustrating, disappointing start. Especially since they already have the worst roster in the National League Central, and much of the rest of the division has been aggressive in one fashion or another.

Despite this, you have to assume that general manager Ben Cherington will make some moves during or shortly after the Winter Meetings. If he does not, then Pirate fans have every right to be outraged and expect the 2024 season to be yet another long, painful, losing one.

Ahead of the start of the Winter Meetings, what does the Pirate 40-man roster currently look like? Today, we will dive into the current construction of the 40-man roster, spots that are available, and who could be in danger of losing their 40-man roster spot.
