Description: The Pirates acquired outfielder/first baseman Jerry Sands from the Red Sox Wednesday as part of a six-player swap.
Insight: Sands dominated Triple-A last season with 26 HR and 107 RBI in 119 games. The Pirates aren't particularly strong in right field (Toronto castoff Travis Snider stands to see the most time there) so it's possible Sands could crack the team's big league roster if he has a good spring training.
