VIN MAZZARO RUMORS & GOSSIP

News and notes: Guilmet, Tabata, Mazzaro, McGuiness

Sadly we are at the point where boring, nearly meaningless news like this warrants a post, as opposed to more postseason action. Oh well. The Pirates acquired relief pitcher Preston Guilmet from Baltimore for cash considerations. Guilmet has had a few short, unimpressive major league stints but has impressive K/BB numbers in the minors. You never know who will come out of the scrum...

Vin Mazzaro and Chris McGuiness Elect Free Agency

According to the transactions page on MiLB.com, pitcher Vin Mazzaro and first baseman Chris McGuiness have both elected to become free agents. McGuiness was recently dropped from the 40-man roster when the Pirates added John Holdzkom to the roster. Mazzaro has been back and forth between the Pirates and Indianapolis over the last two seasons. McGuiness led all Pirates minor league...

Yankees 7, Pirates 1

Two were cheap Yankee Stadium homers, but the short porch didn’t seem to help the Pirates when they were hitting. Volquez continues to struggle – although he didn’t walk anybody, which...

Pirates Rumors: Vin Mazzaro likely to leave Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Pirates had a logjam in the bullpen for the entire Spring.  It was rumored the entire month that the Pirates might ship one of their relievers out if they got a good offer.  Evidently, no offer came and the Pirates were forced to pick who would lose out when they finalized rosters the past Friday.  The odd man out ended up being Vin Mazzaro.  He was designated...

Vin Mazzaro is the odd man out in the bullpen

The final roster decisions for Opening Day 2014 have been made by the Pirates today. Most of the moves were predictable; Chris Stewart and Jeff Locke are headed to the disabled list, Travis Ishikawa was put on the roster and Andy Oliver was outrighted to Triple-A (which means removed from the 40-man roster) to make room for him. The one big lingering decision was the final bullpen...
