Pirates also interested in David DeJesus

Andy Lyons

Ken Rosenthal writes that the Pirates are interested not only in Nate Schierholtz (we knew that already, obviously), but another Cubs outfielder, David DeJesus.

DeJesus recently returned from a shoulder sprain. Like Schierholtz, he's a left-handed who's under team control at a reasonable cost through next year. Also like Schierholtz, he hits well enough to be an asset, particularly given his above-average defense. The Cubs have sounded at times like they intended to keep DeJesus, thinking he was a good clubhouse guy. My guess is that they would rather trade Schierholtz, but either one would address the Pirates' needs.
