Connor Joe Or Miguel Andújar, Did Pirates Get It Right? (+)
Entering the 2023 offseason, the Pittsburgh Pirates already had a fairly crowded mix of outfielders.
Even though he requested a trade, Bryan Reynolds is still on the team. It goes without saying that he will have an everyday role with the club so long as he is not traded before the season begins.
Jack Suwisnki did enough to impress in his rookie campaign between his power and defense that he will likely warrant a starting job as well.
Then there are a handful of young guys. Ji-hwan Bae, Cal Mitchell, Canaan Smith-Njigba and Travis Swaggerty all made their big league debuts a season ago.
Tucupita Marcano also spent a lot of his time in left field for the Pirates last season.
