Pirates pitcher Joe Musgrove could be the next player heading out of Pittsburgh.

According to Radio.com Sports insider Jon Heyman, the right-hander is “drawing keen trade interest.”

Heyman adds after pitcher Blake Snell went to the San Diego Padres in a trade on Sunday, even more teams that were unable to land Snell, could pursue Musgrove.

Musgrove went 1 and 5 this past season with a 3.86 ERA over 8 starts with 55 strikeouts.

Over his career, Musgrove is 29 and 38 with a 4.33 ERA over 108 games with 456 strikeouts.

The Pirates moved first baseman Josh Bell to the Washington Nationals last week in exchange for two pitching prospects.
