The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced the signing of 32-year-old free agent first baseman/outfielder Corey Hart to a one-year deal.
While the team has admitted to working with Third Baseman Pedro Alvarez on a move to First Base, we haven’t seen that happen in a game, but that all changes on Monday night as the Pirates welcome the Atlanta Braves.
The move has been talked about for months, but now the wheels of change have been put in motion as the Pittsburgh Pirates have begun working with Pedro Alvarez on a transition from playing third base to playing first.
With 24 errors this year and throwing issues resembling those that Steve Sax and Chuck Knoblauch went through, the rumblings of moving Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez to first base have begun.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — The Pirates ended their infamous postseason drought in 2013 by turning low-risk moves into high-reward ones, and it might be best for their ship to stay that course through another critical winter.
