Pirates enter 2018 with retooled roster, modest expectations

PITTSBURGH (AP) Depending on the person asked in the clubhouse, the Pittsburgh Pirates are rebuilding. Or they're not. They're retooling. Or they're not. They're pointing toward 2019 and beyond. Or they're focused on the here and now.

The next six months will offer a chance at clarity.

The Pirates head into 2018 without Andrew McCutchen in the outfield on opening day for the first time in nearly a decade and without Gerrit Cole in the rotation for the first time since the start of 2013, traded in offseason moves that saved the franchise millions of dollars. Though both transactions included the Pirates picking up a handful of players they believe can make an immediate impact - including starting pitcher Joe Musgrove and third baseman Colin Moran - they left established Pirates like Josh Harrison wondering aloud whether the club cared about winning or making money.
