According to an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Pirates have shown interest in outfielder Cliff Floyd, although it does not appear Floyd is leaning in their direction. The Cubs appear to be the front runner for Floyd with several AL West teams in the mix.
Jim Tracy managed Floyd in Double-A.
Floyd hit .244 with 11 homers and 44 RBIs last season, and had surgery on his left foot in October. New York replaced him in left with Moises Alou, a free agent who agreed to a contract in October.
