Updated:

Over the last couple of seasons, Pittsburgh has had company at the bottom of the NL Central. With the addition of some big names down on the river in Cincinnati, the Pirates may find the going lonely in 2020. Pittsburgh has some nice feel-good players on their team, but they lost one of the key elements in the middle of their batting order. There are some talented young players in the Pirates' order that will be fun to watch mature.

However, in a tough division it could be hard to expect the Pirates to be competitive on a night-after-night basis. One reason they will experience more down moments than highlights is a starting rotation that doesn't appear to be imposing. The staff ace has fallen on some difficult times over the last couple seasons, and a rekindling of his performance could be a nice stopgap option to prevent long losing streaks. However, the bottom four of the rotation project as average at best.

Pittsburgh Pirates FAQ

The Pirates are a young team but are also going through a rebuild where they might not be sure where to go with some of these names. Injuries have plagued this team, especially Gregory Polanco. The positive is that the DH comes to the National League this season, and Polanco can spend less time in the field. Josh Bell had a breakout 2019 and is the big power bat in the lineup.
