• Pirates land McGuiness in trade with Texas

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Dec 30, 2013
    McGuiness, 25, is coming off his first Triple-A season, with Round Rock in the Pacific Coast League. Although he hit only .246 for Round Rock, McGuiness' plate discipline led to an on-base percentage of .369 and an OPS of .792. Mikolas was acquired by the Pirates on Nov. The Bucs thus landed a left-handed-hitting first baseman from Texas only, not the one many may have anticipated, Mitch Moreland. Mikolas, a seventh-round pick in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of Nova Southeastern University, pitched in 25 games for the Padres in 2012 and was 2-1 with a 3.62 ERA.
