Free agent outfielder Sam Fuld has received offers from five teams, reports Zach Links of MLB Trade Rumors. They are all Minor League deals with an invitation to spring training.
Fuld has spent the past three seasons with the Rays after coming over from the Cubs in the Matt Garza trade. He hasn’t done much with the bat — just a .627 OPS since the start of 2011 — but he has provided speed (35 stolen bases in 47 attempts with the Rays) and defense off the bench as well as an ability to play all three positions in the outfield.
Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. No makeup date has been announced yet. As Brink points out, the two clubs meet again in Pittsburgh September 21-23 and both have an off day on the 20th, so that could be a potential makeup date.
Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.
The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in third place.
