Pirates | Targeting catcher, pitcher on market

The Pittsburgh Pirates figure to add to their $61.375 million payroll next season, but the combined salaries of 3B Pedro Alvarez and six players already under contract for 2013 SP A.J. Burnett, SP Wandy Rodriguez, OF Andrew McCutchen, SS Clint Barmes and OF Jose Tabata will account for $27.7 million. Re-signing a handful of the team's eight arbitration-eligible players will require about $20 million. What is left will likely go toward two areas of particular interest for the Pirates, starting pitcher and catcher.
