According to Jon Paul Morosi, the Pirates are expected to be sellers at the deadline. This means they will look to trade away some of their veteran players, such as catcher Francisco Cervelli, pitcher Ivan Nova, outfielder Corey Dickerson, and infielders Josh Harrison, Jordy Mercer, and Sean Rodriguez. The main ones of this group are Cervelli, Nova, Dickerson, and Harrison. The Pirates were surprisingly in contention up to the middle of May, as they lead the NL Central. Since then however, they are 7-18, and now have a 33-35 record. This put them 8 games back in the division. None of these guys are part of their future plans, and it makes sense for the Pirates should trade. Now how much value does each one have? Cervelli has very good value, as he can serve as a plan B for teams looking for a catcher who lose the JT Realmuto sweepstakes. Those teams include the Nationals, Brewers, Red Sox, and Rockies. Nova may only have a 4.68 ERA, but his ability to force ground balls may intrigue teams who play in a small park. Those teams include the Yankees, Rockies, Diamondbacks, Mariners, and Braves. Harrison provides value with his versatility, and with his on base abilities, as he can play every position and has .290 batting average and a .345 OBP. Teams that may be interested include the Brewers, Indians, Cardinals, and Angels. Lastly, Dickerson may intrigue some with his power, as he currently has a .819 OPS and a .313 average. Teams that may look to trade for him include the Rockies, Phillies, Angels, and Giants. The Pirates have a lot of valuable trade assets, so while they don’t have to trade these guys, they should definitely atleast look into trading them.
