Pittsburgh Pirates: Five Potential Garrett Jones Trades

The Pittsburgh Pirates have made several noteworthy moves this offseason, but is Neal Huntington done dealing?

First baseman Garrett Jones, coming off his best full season in the majors, is a common subject of trade talks. Jones was one of the team's most reliable hitters in 2012, but his poor play in the field may have the Bucs worried about the impact of any regression.

At his best, Jones is probably a two-win player or slightly better than that, with his strong power numbers mitigated by poor on-base and defensive statistics. But Jones remains valuable to the Pirate offense, and they certainly do not need to trade him.

That said, a Jones trade seems to be something the Bucs are considering, so it is worth looking into potential matches. Several teams could use Jones' power, and the Pirates may be able to secure more vital assets for his services.
