Pirates willing to listen to offers for Justin Wilson

Pirates lefty Justin Wilson was one of the best relievers in baseball in 2013, posting a 2.08 ERA in 73 2/3 innings while holding left-handed batters to a .200/.266/.235 line. That performance has apparently caught the attention of the rest of the big leagues.

FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi tweets that the Pirates “have been overwhelmed by trade interest” for Wilson this winter and are beginning to listen to the offers that are being made. Wilson is 26 years old and inexpensive, and the Bucs plan to compete in 2014, but a package of talent for a relief pitcher is typically a good swap. The Bucs will presumably be asking for a return of nearly-MLB-ready players.

    I thought this was CJ wilson when I first saw him pitch for the pirates. Similar motion and hair.

    I am willing to listen to Country Western Music (well not really), but it doesn’t mean I would buy any.
