At the 2021 trade deadline, the Pittsburgh Pirates traded away pitchers Tyler Anderson, Clay Holmes, Richard Rodriguez and Austin Davis, as well as second baseman Adam Frazier. They also traded pitching prospect Braeden Ogle. Here’s a look at the stats from the 11 players who were acquired for those players in six separate deals.
Adam Frazier for Tucupita Marcano, Jack Suwinski and Michell Miliano
Marcano was the big piece in this deal and he has struggled in Indianapolis, hitting .231/.332/.288 in 42 games. He just turned 22 last week and has some big league experience.
Suwinski hit .252/.359/.391 in 45 games for Altoona. He turned 23 right before the trade and had a .949 OPS in 66 games at Double-A before the deal.
Miliano really struggled after the deal, posting a 6.30 ERA and a 2.30 WHIP in 20 innings over 16 games with Greensboro. He had 23 strikeouts, but also walked 26 batters. He is 21 years old.
Richard Rodriguez for Bryse Wilson and Ricky DeVito
DeVito was already injured when acquired and the Pirates immediately put him on the 60-day IL, officially ending his season. There was no surprise there, they knew he was out for the season.
Wilson made eight starts for the Pirates before his season ended due to a minor hamstring injury. He had a 4.91 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP and 10:23 BB/SO ratio in 40 innings with the Pirates. He’s 23 years old and has five full seasons of control left before free agency.
Clay Holmes for Hoy Park and Diego Castillo
Park saw a little Triple-A time, but he’s mostly been in the majors. With the Pirates, he has a .183/.280/.321 slash line in 37 games, while seeing playing time at six positions. He is 25 years old and has six full years of control left.
Diego Castillo hit .282/.342/.445 in 28 games with Altoona, and .297/.429/.514 in 12 games with Indianapolis. He turns 24 next month and he will reach minor league free agency at the end of the season, so he probably gets added to the 40-man roster this off-season.
Tyler Anderson for Carter Bins and Joaquin Tejada
Catching prospect Bins got hurt twice since joining the Pirates, so he saw little action in his time with Altoona, putting up a .570 OPS in 16 games. He did great in High-A with the Mariners, but he had a .459 OPS in 11 games at Double-A before the trade, so his 27-game sample size at the level shows a .528 OPS. He turns 23 in two weeks.
Tejada is in the Dominican Summer League, where the season still has over a week left. He has a 3.80 ERA in 23.2 innings, with a 1.52 WHIP and a 13:25 BB/SO ratio. He turned 18 in July.
Austin Davis for Michael Chavis
Chavis went to Triple-A after the deal, joined the Pirates, got hurt, and now he’s back in Triple-A on rehab. He had a .955 OPS in six games with the Pirates and a .907 OPS in 22 games with Indianapolis (including rehab). He’s 26 years old and has four full years of control.
Braeden Ogle for Abrahan Gutierrez
Gutierrez (pictured above) is a 21 year old catching prospect, who missed a little time on the injured list. He homered in the playoffs last night. In 22 regular season games after the trade, he hit .294/.448/.471, with more walks (16) than strikeouts (13).
