USA Today's John Perrotto hears that the Pirates are targeting Dee Gordon and Jose Iglesias in the Joel Hanrahan trade talks.

The Pirates clearly aren't satisfied with the offense Clint Barmes gives them, but Gordon and Iglesias don't appear ready to provide much at the plate, either. Obviously they'd be gambling on potential upside while also hopefully finding a long-term solution at the position. It appears pretty likely at this point that Hanrahan will be traded, with Jason Grilli taking over as closer.
