Here's another minor league free agent I thought would have been a good gamble for the Pirates.
Tampa Bay has signed 1B Ryan Shealy to a minor league contract. The deal includes an invitation to spring training. Shealy, 28, has a .271/.335/.429 batting line over parts of four major league seasons and has always perfformed well in the minors. If we are intent on putting Clement at 1B in Pittsburgh, this would have been a great plan B to have at Indy. And an inexpensive one at that.
