MLB Offseason Roundup: Wheels Up to Bradenton!

Pittsburgh Pirates, Pirates prospects, MLB Offseason

This is one in a series of daily articles highlighting the latest news and notes from the MLB offseason.

By the time you read this, John Perrotto and I will have (hopefully) just boarded a plane getting ready to fly down to Bradenton, Fla.

After a long, cold offseason in Pittsburgh, Pirates’ pitchers and catchers report to spring training underneath the Florida sun.

For me, it’s my first time going to Bradenton to cover the Pirates, which is why I’m fortunate to have John as my traveling companion. This is the start of his 37th season, and the veteran presence from one of the best in the business will be most helpful.

Get ready for plenty of stories from the two of us as the Pirates get set to kick of their 2024 season. At the bottom of this page, you’ll find a link to subscribe to PBN+ to make sure you don’t miss a single thing. Use code Danny10 to get $10 off of a yearly subscription.

OFFSEASON AIN’T DEAD YET

The San Francisco Giants are in agreement with slugger Jorge Soler on a three-year deal, per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Soler was an All-Star for the first time last season with the Miami Marlins. He hit 36 home runs and posted an .853 OPS on the year.

The San Diego Padres have already reported to spring training, but we’ll still count their latest transaction as part of the MLB offseason.

San Diego has agreed to a one-year deal to bring back utilityman Jurickson Profar. The agreement is for $1 million and Profar can earn an additional $1.5 million through incentives.
