The Pirates have sent right-hander Tanner Anderson and his Bronson Arroyo-like leg kick to Oakland. The return hasn’t been reported yet, but it’s unlikely to be more than a lower level lottery ticket, or cash. The move was undoubtedly made to free up roster space, which we should see more on very shortly.
UPDATE: And, in fact, the return was a player to be named later or cash.
Pirates' Rule 5 moves are in. Mitch Keller, Cole Tucker, Jason Martin and J.T. Brubaker get spots. Pirates clear one spot by trading Tanner Anderson to Oakland for a PTBNL or cash.— Bill Brink (@BrinkPG) November 21, 2018
