The Pirates are rumored to be pursuing free agent Jaime Garcia, along with the Brewers and Royals. I think he would pitch well for them if he stays healthy, but the rotation is already 7 or 8 guys deep.

The only way this makes sense is if they are are trying to put some more veteran guys in place in the rotation instead of the young guys so that they can make one final run with Cutch. In this case, I would hope they are thinking of trading Chad Kuhl, Trevor Williams, Steven Brault, Tyler Glasnow, or Nick Kingham for some offense. There are teams out there that have some good young offensive pieces, like the Twins, Padres, A's, and Braves, that just need some good young arms. Perhaps a deal can be struck for a Chad Pinder, a Yangervis Solarte, or a Johan Camargo.

I’d rather them sign a guy like Garcia and trade Cole for the offense. I don’t think any of the guys you mentioned would bring in what is needed.
