The Pirates top priority is to add a right handed power bat and they have been extensively scouting Trumbo over the past month, according to industry sources.
The 6-4, 220 lbs 1st baseman hit 32 homeruns for the Angels Class A affiliate last season.
The Pirates would also want a pitching prospect included into any deal.
The Angels are also interested in Pirates reliever John Grabow.
