Top Edward Olivares News

  • Pirates' Edward Olivares: Retreats to bench Sunday

    Olivares is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Olivares had started each of the past four games -- two against right-handed starting pitchers and two against lefties -- while going 5-for-15 with a pair of solo home runs and an additional run. The 28-year-old still looks like the Pirates' fourth outfielder/backup designated hitter, but he's playing regularly versus lefties and often enough against righties to warrant consideration for a roster spot in deeper mixed leagues.

  • Pirates' Edward Olivares: Clubs two homers in loss

    Olivares went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs during Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Tigers.

    The 28-year-old put Pittsburgh on the board with a solo blast during the second inning and followed up with another solo shot in the sixth. Olivares hasn't been an everyday starter in the early going with six starts through 12 games, though his three homers and .321/.367/.679 slash line in 30 plate appearances could certainly earn him more playing time.

  • Pirates' Edward Olivares: Occupying right field Monday

    Olivares will start in right field and bat fifth in Monday's game versus the Nationals.

    Most of Olivares' playing time this season will likely come against left-handers, and luckily for him, the Pirates have faced five southpaw starters in as many games to open the campaign. Olivares has been in the lineup four times, reaching base five times and hitting a home run in the first three of those contests.

  • Pirates' Edward Olivares: Gets start versus southpaw

    Olivares is starting in right field and batting fifth in Friday's game in Miami, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Olivares didn't start Opening Day against a lefty, but he gets the nod in the second game with southpaw A.J. Puk on the hill. The left-handed hitting Jack Suwinski has been on the bench for both games.

  • Pirates' Edward Olivares: Sluggish start to spring

    Olivares is 2-for-18 with four strikeouts in Grapefruit League action.

    The Pirates acquired Olivares this winter, and he should have a role in right field with the team in 2024. Exactly how much he'll play is unclear, as the Pirates also have Josh Palacios (leg) and Connor Joe as potential fits at the position. Olivares's spring performance isn't ideal given the competition for playing time, though his adequate 22.2 percent strikeout rate suggests a few more hits could start falling in soon.

  • Pirates' Edward Olivares: Settles at $1.35 million

    Olivares signed a $1.35 million contract with the Pirates on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    After slashing .263/.317/.452 with 36 RBI across 385 plate appearances last season with Kansas City, Olivares was traded to Pittsburgh in December. The 27-year-old outfielder boasts an .800 OPS against southpaws since 2021 and figures to be a regular part of Pittsburgh's lineup in 2024.

  • Pirates' Edward Olivares: Traded to Pirates

    The Royals traded Olivares to the Pirates on Friday in exchange for Deivis Nadal, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    With the signing of Chris Stratton becoming official Friday, the Royals unloaded Olivares to make room on their 40-man roster. The 27-year-old will likely be used both in the outfield and as a designated hitter next season, and he provides a significant boost to Pittsburgh's lineup against lefties after slashing .277/.339/.518 versus southpaws last season.

It was a strong finish to the campaign for the outfielder, who has hit for a decent average at times with little pop. For the season, he slashed .263/.317/.452 with 12 long balls, 11 stolen bases, 36 RBI, 47 runs scored, 23 doubles and four triples across 385 plate appearances.

    Olivares went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's 12-5 win over the Yankees.

    Olivares went 13 games without a homer before Friday's blast, though he hit .318 (14-for-44) with four doubles and two stolen bases in that span. The 27-year-old's long ball came in the first inning as part of a nine-run blitz to begin the contest. He's up to 11 homers, 35 RBI, 46 runs scored, 11 steals and a .264/.318/.447 slash line through 105 games this season.
