"Per source, Pirates have 'genuine interest' in free-agent RHP Kyle Gibson and the two sides recently talked via a video call.

Last season, Gibson was second on the Phillies’ staff with 31 starts and went 10-8 with a 5.05 ERA." - Biertempfel

I am happy that the Pirates are talking to some of the free agent pitchers, and if they sign Gibson that is fine. I would like that they sign a lefty pitcher for the rotation as well. At this point they are a right handed staff. I wish that Quintana would return, but he will probably sign with a team closer to competing for the postseason.

"Per the Pirates transaction page, the team has signed SS Shawn Ross to a Minor League contract.

Ross, 23, went undrafted out of Faulkner University. In 81 games in the Pioneer League, Ross hit .280/.408/.614 with 24 home runs and 14 steals." - delos Santos

Catcher Ali  Sanchez was claimed off waivers from the Pirates. There was nothing showing that the Bucs  had placed him on waivers. The Diamond Backs claimed him. Roster now at 39 players.

Same thing I just saw on the transaction page with Miguel Yajure, the Giants claimed him off waivers. This one is a real head scratcher.

have to wonder if anyone else was placed on waivers too and not claimed. 
don't mind Ali but agree Yajure is a headscratcher, especially if with some of the others still on roster (Underwood for example).

Looks like they put multiple players on waivers to make room on the roster for some free agents as well as a Rule 5 pick.

Gibson has been signed by Baltimore per sources. The Pirates will have to look to someone else to sign.

I would prefer a left handed starting pitcher. I am guessing Quintana is out of their price range.

After struggling for most of the past 5 years including being primarily in the bullpen in 2021, Quintana took advantage of the Pirates' offer to again be a starter and try to resurrect his failing career. The better teams couldn't afford to take a chance on him but the Pirates had nothing to lose. It turned out to be a successful move for Quintana who showed MLB that he was back on track as an effective starter. He even pitched 5.1 scoreless innings for St.L. in a playoff game. He's now in position to get a good contract from a competitive team. He's not about to parlay last season's success into a chance to tie himself to the woeful Pirates for several years to come. That's not what he was working to achieve last season.

he isn't as injury prone as Perez and likely to hit over 200!  He made 7.5 million last year, maybe Bucs can get for 3-4 million since he had a bad year.

Ryan Yarbrough was designated by the Rays tonight. He has had some success in the past, so possibly the Bucs may claim him. He appears to be similar to the signing of Tyler Anderson a couple years ago. A lefty pitcher in PNC Park, who possibly could get back on track.

As far as I know Yarbrough has not signed with any team yet, and since guys like Quintana have signed elsewhere I think the Pirates should offer this guy a one year deal. The starting staff needs a lefty pitcher, and he could fill that need.
