I will predict S Rod to be released and Polanco will be traded so Meadows can play on a regular basis. Luplow will become the fourth outfielder, but he will not play on a rotation basis as the 4 current outfielders.

If Rodriguez is released, they should bring up Bostick.  Bostick can spot start at SS and play the outfield if needed.

I wouldn't mind them giving Bostick a shot.  He has hit at Indy and did well in his time with Bucs last year.  I don't think he is even as good as Harrison at short though.  He has only played 24 games there in minors and none since 2015.

Bostick has been playing more OF than INF at Indy this season.  Would not mind him here but Clint might play him as much as he does SRod.  Not good.

Surprise Surprise:

According to MLB.com's Jon Morosi, the Pirates are expected to be sellers at the trade deadline unless the team's record improves drastically over the next month.

The Pirates have fallen back to Earth after getting off to a hot start and are now poised to press the reset button ahead of the July 31 deadline. This continues the rebuilding movement that began this offseason when Pittsburgh dealt mainstays Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole. Morosi named Francisco Cervelli, Corey Dickerson, David Freese, Josh Harrison, Jordy Mercer, Ivan Nova and Sean Rodriguez as veterans Pittsburgh would consider trading. Jameson Taillon will also draw plenty of interest, though Morosi doesn't anticipate the Bucs shopping him. Either way, it looks like the Pirates are open for business.

People are giddy about bringing up a guy that has 3000+ at bats in the minors and only 27 career at bats in the MLB.  This is where we are at, unfortunately.

I don't get why they would trade Dickerson.  I don't see them trading Taillon at all and when you consider our starters in the organization aren't good and we have few on the farm close to being ready ... I don't see that one happening.  No one on that list absent a healthy Cervelli and Dickerson brings you much in return.
