Adam Rubin of ESPN tweets that, via the NY Post, the Pirates have agreed to term with Evans. We're in trouble if he's anything but AAA filler, but seeing as the Pirates probably are in trouble, I doubt it would shock anyone if he started 40 games for this club in some horrible platoon at first base. Evans was moderately useful for the Mets in a bench role last year, but his 0.7 WAR figure is probably a bit high. He's a replacement-level player who, ideally, will help Indy a good bit. UPDATE by Charlie: Essentially, Evans is a lot like Matt Hague. He's about the same age, he's right-handed, and he hits for average, but not enough power for a first baseman. Suffering Buc's writeup is pretty reasonable, but I'm a bit more optimistic than he or she is - Evans has had massive platoon splits for his career (with an .849 OPS against lefties), and he's had a terrible time in the Mets' home park (he has an .825 career OPS on the road), so there's at least some reason to hope the Pirates could get some good work out of him by platooning him with Garrett Jones. Of course, the same could be said of Hague. But I could see Evans getting a fair amount of playing time, particularly if the Pirates can't find a deal they like on a first baseman this winter. It's a minor-league deal, so there's no harm in it either way. Here's his profile at FanGraphs.
