First baseman/outfielder Connor Joe

This one may be a bit of a surprise to some. However, with the Pirates likely looking to add a full-time first baseman this offseason and Joshua Palacios putting a strong down payment on the team's fourth outfielder role, especially with his ability to play center field, it could leave Connor Joe without a spot on the roster.

While Joe may not have a spot on the Pirate roster in 2024, he is more than good enough to have a role in the majors. Last season, Joe hit .247/.339/.421 with a .174 ISO, 107 wRC+, and a 107 OPS+. Those ar eabove league average numbers.

Joe is a patient hitter who gets on base at a high clip and has sneaky pop. He is especially strong against left-handed pitching. A team in need of a right-handed platoon bat would be interested in Joe. Due to this, he is a player the Pirates could look to move this offseason as he may not have a spot on the Pirate roster in 2024.
