Things just got strange in Pittsburgh.

MLB Insider Jeff Passan reported that infielder Dee Strange-Gordon is in agreement with the Pirates on a minor league deal, and will report to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Strange-Gordon, 33, is no stranger to the NL Central. He was signed by the Cincinnati Reds this off-season, only to be cut in Spring Training. Milwaukee took a chance on him in April, but cut him in May after he spent time with their Triple-A affiliate, Nashville, posting a .333/.378/.500 line in ten games.

He would sign with the Cubs on a minor league deal just days after the Brewers released him, but opted out of that deal yesterday.

He didn’t find as much success with the Iowa Cubs, Chicago’s Triple-A affiliate, posting a line of .233/.270/.310.

Since debuting in 2008, Strange-Gordon has a .288 lifetime batting average in the MLB with a .319 on-base percentage and 333 total stolen bases.
