The Pittsburgh Pirates offense so far this year has been disappointing, to say the least. Despite the pitching staff giving the Bucs plenty of chances to win, the team is below .500 at the time of writing this. Of their 21 losses, 14 have been within three runs. While expecting a win in every close game is unreasonable, even coming away with the W in just five or six of these contests would put a much different spin on the season so far.

Obviously, it’s still early, and giving up now wouldn’t be smart. If the Pirates’ offense played even at an average level, they probably would have come away with the W in five or six of the close losses. The hitting hasn’t been great, but here are some players that the Pirates could call upon that may be able to give the line-up a much-needed boost.
