The potential upside of Edward Olivares

Edward Olivares and the Pittsburgh Pirates have a chance to do something that has not been done by the organization in some time.

Over the years, the Pirates have managed to find value, sometimes tremendous value, in hitters other teams undervalued.

They signed 1B/DH Daniel Vogelbach to a one-year $1 million deal in in 2022 and after 75 games of solid offensive production, was traded to the New York Mets for set-up man Colin Holderman. Vogelbach was an All-Star in 2019 however, so it was more of a reclamation project than anything else.
