Pirates Tried to Trade For Mark Trumbo, Which Isn’t Happening

Earlier today there was a report from Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times that the Pirates inquired on Mark Trumbo and might be willing to part with a young starting pitcher.

It seems that those talks have gone nowhere. Jon Heyman reports that the Pirates tried to make a play for Trumbo, which doesn’t sound like there’s any possibility of a deal.

Jim Bowden says the Angels had no interest in dealing Trumbo.

Rob Biertempfel says the interest got very little traction.

So this is pretty much a non-rumor, but if you were wondering about Trumbo, that’s it. Not going to happen, since the Angels don’t seem to want to deal him.
