Pirates GM on Bautista

This is Pirates GM Neal Huntington’s take from Jenifer Langosch’s trade story from the Pirates’ point of view:

If we can reach him and help him throw more strikes, we could have a
guy who is pitching in the middle to pitch in the back end,” Huntington
said. “It’s our thought that he’s a nice addition and a nice upgrade
over what we currently have.”

Kind of sounds familiar. Can’t blame the Pirates for trying, though.

It’s another low-risk [acquisition] with the potential to have a
medium-to-high upside,” Huntington said. “There’s
a chance to have a real good return for us. It’s a very good arm that
we don’t have a whole lot of.”
