Baseball America lists the Pirates among five teams who could sign Cuban first baseman Jose Abreu. I'll believe the Pirates could sign Abreu when I see it. He's risky, given problems translating Serie Nacional stats to the majors and given scout-y concerns over Abreu's swing and ability to hit big-league pitching. Also, he's right-handed, and his defense isn't highly-regarded. And he should require more money to sign than Yasiel Puig got.
I have no idea whether signing Abreu would actually be a good idea for the Pirates; he has amazing power, but there are plenty of drawbacks, and it will be very hard for us as outsiders to figure out how to balance them. Still, for a franchise in need of an upgrade at first, Abreu is at least worth looking into. We'll see.
