Pirates general manager Neal Huntington implied that the team is likely to trade reliever Vin Mazzaro.

"We’ve had conversations," Huntington said. "If he gets to the outright waiver process, it will be a surprise to us." Mazzaro was designated for assignment Saturday after he failed to make the team out of spring. He had a strong 2013 season, and it's not surprising that teams looking for relief help would call on the 27-year-old.

Pirates designated RHP Vin Mazzaro for assignment.

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Pirates are willing to listen to offers for reliever Vin Mazzaro.
