Pirates Trades Recap

As the MLB Trade Deadline swiftly approaches, the Pirates have gotten themselves extremely busy making a huge move Sunday evening. On Monday Night, they made another move. Here is a Recap of those Trades.

Lets start with the big one over the weekend. NL All-Star and MLB hits leader Adam Frazier was sent to the Padres in exchange for a trio of Prospects. Frazier is now 29, but has posted his best statistical year as a Professional. He’s hit .327 with four Homers and five steals..

It was a no-brainer for the Buccos to move Frazier. They have fallen completely out of the Standings and now its time to continue to build up the Farm System. In case you didn’t see it on Sunday, here’s what the Buccos got in return:

  • Tucupita Marcano, an Average Utility Infielder with some speed.
  • Jack Suwinski, who has hit .269 in Double A this year, but a big Strikeout rate at 27.7%.
  • and Michell Miliano, a Right Handed Pitcher with 25 Walks in 30 Innings this year.

Hopefully, these Players will continue to improve in the Pirates Farm System.

The Pirates made another move on Monday, dealing bullpen arm Clay Holmes to the Yanks in exchange for a pair of Infield Prospects. Holmes was 3-2 with a 4.93 in 44 games. He pitched 42 innings and recorded 44 K’s to go along with a 1.43 as a Reliever.

Here is what the Pirates got in exchange for Holmes:

  • Hoy Jun Park, an Infielder who currently ranks first among all Triple-A East League players in batting (.327), OBP (.475), OPS (1.042) and walks (46), tied for third in runs scored (44) and fourth in slugging percentage (.567). is hitting a combined .307 (62-for-202) with 10 doubles, one triple, 11 home runs, 32 RBI and a .981 OPS in 58 games this season between Double-A Somerset and Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre. Park was ranked by MLB.com as the No. 13 prospect for the 2014 international signing period.
  • The 23-year-old Diego Castillo, another Infielder who was ranked by MLB.com as the No. 16 prospect for the 2014 international signing period. Since making his professional debut with the Dominican Summer League Yankees 1 team in 2015, he has produced a .269 career average 532-for-1976), 89 doubles, 15 triples, 19 home runs and 206 RBI in 510 games at the minor league level.
