    The Pirates are “shopping” outfielder Jose Tabata, according to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. Tabata is slated to see regular action in right field, but with top prospect Gregory Polanco waiting in the wings (and playing right field) at Triple-A his time as a starter in Pittsburgh could only be a few more…

  16. Pirates send top prospect Gregory Polanco to the minors

    Mar 14, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Gregory Polanco Pirates

    Gregory Polanco was always a long shot to make the Pirates out of spring training and today the team officially ruled him out, optioning the 22-year-old top prospect to the minors among the latest batch of roster cuts. Polanco was impressive in camp, but has just 70 games of experience above Single-A and wasn’t especially…

    I saw this floating around Twitter over the past several days It’s loads of fun.

    Oct 9, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Division Series - Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game Five

    It was the bats that failed the Pirates in the end. Starling Marte finished the NLDS 1-for-19 with one walk and a hit by pitch from the leadoff spot. Neil Walker, right behind him batting second, was 0-for-19 with two walks. It’s tough to generate much offense when your top two hitters reach base a…

    The Pirates put a bunch of runners on base in the bottom of the sixth inning and in doing so, chased Cardinals starter Joe Kelly. Andrew McCutchen led off the inning with a walk. Following a lazy fly out by Justin Morneau, Marlon Byrd continued his torrid hitting with a double to left, putting runners…

    Jul 14, 2013, 1:41 PM EDT

    pirates logo

    Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune has the scoop: Looking to upgrade in right field, the Pirates are studying deals for Nate Schierholtz and Alex Rios. It is possible that they’ll make a move sooner rather than later, as they are tied for the NL Central lead while last in OPS at the position (slash line…

    Jose Tabata Getty

    Jose Tabata is back from the disabled list after missing the past six weeks with an oblique injury. To make room for him on the roster the Pirates demoted yesterday’s spot starter, Brandon Cumpton, to Triple-A. Andrew McCutchen and Starling Marte obviously aren’t going anywhere in the Pirates’ outfield, so any playing time Tabata receives…

    Apr 26, 2013, 10:21 PM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen

    Andrew McCutchen entered tonight’s game against the Cardinals hitting just .235, including .105 in his previous five games, but you don’t expect the Pirates’ star to be subbed out in a fifth-inning double-switch. But that’s exactly what acting manager Jeff Bannister did when he approached home plate umpire Tim Timmons with his lineup card. Starling…
