On Tuesday night’s edition of Front Burner on MLB Network, Ken Rosenthal (MLB Network Insider and FOX Sports Reporter) named Pirates Andrew McCutchen as the ‘Best Center Fielder -Right Now’.
“I’ll go with the guy that no one talks about because he plays for the Pittsburgh Pirates. That would be Andrew McCutchen. People don’t realize how good a player this kid is becoming and is already. Last year amongst center fielders, fourth in OPS behind Torii Hunter (who no longer is a center fielder), Vernon Wells and Colby Rasmus. McCutchen Is a guy who is a five tool talent; stole 33 bases last year. We’re going to hear a lot more about him in the years ahead and frankly, we should be hearing about him now.”
Jon Morosi of Fox Sports reports that the Pirates are interested in Lyle Overbay.
Sources say Pirates and free agent Lyle Overbay have been talking. Not clear if they are making progress on a deal.
