Report: Pirates Open to Trading Duke, Maholm


Report: Pirates Open to Trading Duke, Maholm In baseball, there are buyers and sellers. And then there are the Pirates.

After trading away three starting infielders and two starting outfielders so far this season, the Pirates might not be done.

According to a report on, general manger Neal Huntington said that All-Star Zach Duke and starter Paul Maholm are still on the table for any team interested.

Though they are not believed to be actively shopping the pitchers, the report says that Huntington and the Pirates still could be "overwhelmed" and act on a deal.

In the past 12 months or so, the Pirates have traded away an All-Star team of sorts. Last July, the team traded away outfielders Xavier Nady and three-time All-Star Jason Bay. This year, the Pirates sent away Nate McClouth and Nyjer Morgan before the break, and have since dealt Adam LaRoche, Jack Wilson and Freddy Sanchez.
