Three Moves the Pirates could make within the next week according to various outlets:
1. Trade Damaso Marte to the Phillies for Jon Lieber. This would fulfill DL's need for a right handed starter in the rotation and would come at a relatively cheap price for the Pirates, who have a plethora of late-inning relievers.
2. Trade Jose Castillo. The Pirates have made it known they want an everyday position for Freddy Sanchez, and seeing as though he won the Batting Title in 2006, that is probably not a bad idea. That position could be second base if they choose to move Castillo to the outfield or trade him.
3. Sign Jose Hernandez. The Pirates still need to fill out their bench, Hernandez will come pretty cheap and we all know Hernandez has a fan on the bench in manager Jim Tracy.
