    The Pirates made a pair of trades Friday night, including one that sent reliever Chris Resop to the Oakland Athletics.

    The Pirates acquired minor league pitcher Zach Thornton from the Athletics and sent infielder Yamaico Navarro to the Baltimore Orioles for minor league pitcher Jhondaniel Medina.

    The Pirates claimed Resop, 30, off waivers in 2010, and he has been a fixture in the Pirates' bullpen ever since. He signed a one-year, $850,000 deal last offseason to avoid arbitration. He had a 3.91 ERA last season, pitching 72 2/3 innings in 61 appearances.

    Thornton, 24, has a 3.29 ERA in three minor league seasons in the Athletics organization. A right-handed reliever, he went 4-0 with 16 saves in Class A last season and has one career appearance in Class AA.

    Medina, 19, has a career 3.14 ERA in three minor league seasons. He spent most of last season pitching for the Gulf Coast League Orioles, where he went 1-3 with a 3.72 ERA.

    The Pirates traded for Navarro, 25, last season, and he appeared in 29 games for the Pirates, hitting .160 with one home run. He was designated for assignment earlier this week.

    Default Pirates deal Resop in series of trades

    I'm not sure how I feel about the Resop deal.
    He's pitched pretty well the last couple years.
    The bullpen is going to be a challenge this year.

    Is it Feb 14th yet???

    We got younger. Maybe one of these will be the next Resop. Ya never know.

    It's not that Resop is irreplaceable, don't get me wrong.
    And the Pirates need to continue to add depth.
    But I do think its important to have veterans in the pen as well.

    NH has shown the ability to find bullpen arms, both young and with experience...I liked Resop, but he was going to cost even more this year, wasn't he?

    funny to say, but I trust the GM...whodathunk I'd be saying that after all the years of bad ones?

    Resop was solid and dependable, but he was traded for youth to make way for someone like Bryan Morris. I'm pretty intrigued by Zach Thornton and like NH's track record of putting a good bullpen together.
