Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Pirates are working to acquire a reliever to bolster their bullpen.

Advice: The Pirates made a move to upgrade their offense earlier in the day on Thursday when the acquired Aramis Ramirez from the Brewers, and now it appears they are on the hunt for a late-inning arm. With Mark Melancon firmly entrenched in the ninth inning, any available help would join Tony Watson and Jared Hughes in a setup capacity.
