The Pittsburgh Pirates could add another starting pitcher via the trade market from the San Francisco Giants
The Pittsburgh Pirates are still in need of another pitcher. The free agent market still has some solid options, but I believe the Pirates will make their biggest pitching additions via the free agent market. One team that is rumored to be willing to shop some of their pitchers is the San Francisco Giants.
According to Ken Rosenthal, if the Giants make a significant splash in the free agent market, they would be more likely to part with some of their young, MLB-ready, or near-MLB-ready pitchers. There are a few that I want to cover, as I think there definitely is potential for a deal between these two teams.
But there are two pitchers that, if the Giants decide to dangle in free agency, would be good fits for the Pirates’ current starting rotation needs.
