Does anyone think Pittsburgh might be interested in Reed? Apparently they are looking for more outfielders Marte being suspended. While Reed is unproven, he's been killing the ball in Biloxi and should be a good 4th OF when Marte comes back. I have no idea what we would get in return, but with the glut of OF in the system it might be worth a call.

You would think just in general (and Reed fits), that we would be a good match for Pittsburg. Always tough doing division trades and the Jason Rogers for Trey Supak and Broxton deal might still have a bad taste in their mouths.

I'm not sure Reed is really majors ready, nor is he destined to be a good major league player. Lots of strikeouts and pedestrian minors stats.

He's young so I'm not punting on him and I generally only follow our minors players statistically, so somebody can explain to me the hype about him, but the Pirates have plenty of mediocre MLB right-handed players on their roster that they can shuffle the defensive positions around to get on the field.

They seem reluctant to call up Meadows who probably isn't ready, but they can probably get by with Frazier, Bell, and probably some scrap heap FA signing for a few more weeks before they can prep for Marte returning in mid-July.

What about Kyle Wren? Gets on base, steals bases and is a good defender. Already was having trouble getting AB's in AAA with Brinson, Phillips and Cordell. Now with Newenhuis in AAA he'll only get PH's or get demoted to AA.

Flip Wren to PITT and hope we can get a Trey Supak type of prospect back.

I'm sure the Pirates have their own 4A OF options they could use to replace Marte. No reason for them to give up anything to get things they already have.

Only thing Id think of with a Reed por Wren trade to Pittsburgh is for cash and opening a 40man spot. Because in no situation will the fans for the Pirates understand trading for an OF with little to none ML experience when they know Meadows is sitting there waiting in their system.

I think this kind of move would just be ahead of saying we were going to waive Reed or Wren to open a 40man spot anyway. I'd think Kirk N. jas a more realistic shot to be handed to Pittsburgh, but then again Kirk N's H/A splits being so awful Pitts must believe that road split is the guy they'd be acquiring.

Wren isn't even on the 40 man. I agree with Jericho, every MLB team has a Reed or Wren, no need to trade for one.

Yeah, Reed and Wren are worth next to nothing. If they want to sell one that's fine with me but it'll be a classic 'PTBNL or cash considerations' deal.
