Happy MLB trade deadline day!
There have been so many blockbusters around the league, Javy Baez to the Mets, Kris Bryant to the Giants, Anthony Rizzo and Joey Gallo to the Yanks, Max Sherzer and Trea Turner to the Dodgers
the list goes on and on and on the Pirates don’t have quite those names.
But they did deal perhaps their second best deadline piece Today
Adam Frazier was already sent to the Padres he was the Pirates number one chip but now, closer Richard Rodriguez is on the way out, the Pirates agreed to send Rich Rod to Atlanta in exchange for righties Bryse Wilson and Ricky Devito from Atlanta
The 23 year old Wilson made his Major League debut 20 years, 243 days old, on August 20, 2018, at Pittsburgh,
During last year’s playoffs, he limited the Dodgers to one run on one hit in 6.0 innings in Game Four of the National League Championship Series to become just the second rookie pitcher in baseball history to start his postseason debut and allow no more than one hit in at least 6.0 innings.
The 22-year-old DeVito has gone 0-3 with a 2.66 ERA (20.1ip/6er), 27 strikeouts and .232 batting average against in five appearances (five starts) this season with High A Rome prior to being placed on the injured list on June 9.
The Buccos also made another trade
