Pirates Notes: Ramirez, Huntington, Trades

Let's check out some notes on the Pirates as they finish out the second act in their doubleheader against the Nationals..

  • Rene Gayo, the Pirates' Director of Latin American scouting, had high praise for outfielder Harold Ramirez, tweets Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  "He's a real exciting player. Plays like Willie Mays," said Gayo.  Earlier today, the Bucs signed Ramirez for $1.05MM.
  • Pirates president Frank Coonelly sounds as if he's ready to extend GM Neal Huntington's contract, writes Biertempfel.  Huntington is signed through the end of this season.
  • As the Bucs look to upgrade their offense this year and build for the future at the same time, Kevin Gorman of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says that Huntington might want to consider standing pat.
