In the last few weeks the Pirates have traded Bryan Morris to the Marlins and announced the player to be named in the Ike Davis deal. Let’s look at how the new information alters the trade trees for those players.
Morris was known as the last player left from the Jason Bay trade. That honor now falls to recent draft pick Connor Joe.
The speculation at the time of the Ike Davis trade was that the PTBNL was a 2013 draft pick, and by rule could not be traded until one year after the draft. This turned out to be true when last year’s second round pick Blake Taylor was sent to the Mets on June 15.

Finally consummating a deal that was long rumored in the offseason, the Pirates have acquired 1B Ike Davis from the Mets in exchange for minor league RHP Zack Thornton and a player to be named later.
Davis, 27, will fill the left-handed hitting half of a first base platoon with Gaby Sanchez. He hit 32 HR in 2012 and sports a career line of .241/.334./.433.
Thornton was acquired from Oakland for RHP Chris Resop, who was a waiver claim from the Braves. No word on who the PTBNL will be, but Jon Heyman tweets it will be a “fairly significant” player.
The Mets side of the trade looks like this:
