PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Pirates are bringing in veteran outfielder Michael Taylor on a one-year deal worth $4 million, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan on Friday.

The deal is pending a physical

Taylor, who turns 33 this month, joins a team that is looking for help in right field as the season approaches. He hit .220 with 21 home runs and 53 RBIs last season while playing in Minnesota.

Pittsburgh is Taylor's fourth stop in the majors. He spent his first seven seasons with Washington, helping the Nationals win the 2019 World Series. He played for Kansas City in 2021 and 2022 and appeared in 129 games last season in Minnesota as the Twins ran away with the AL Central title.

Taylor is a .239 career hitter with 95 home runs and 332 RBIs in 10 seasons.

The Pirates are set in left field with Bryan Reynolds and in center with Jack Suwinski. There are questions, however, in right field as they try to take another step forward after finishing 76-86 last year.

Connor Joe started 49 games in right field in 2023 but is expected to split time at first base this season with Rowdy Tellez. The Pirates also have Josh Palacios and Edward Olivares in the mix in right.

Pittsburgh also agreed to a minor league deal with former New York Yankees pitcher Domingo Germán that includes an invitation to big league camp for spring training, The Associated Press reported Friday.

Germán, 31, entered treatment for alcohol abuse last summer after being placed on the restricted list by the Yankees. A person with knowledge of Germán's agreement with the Pirates told the AP that the club met with Germán, his wife, Mara, and members of the Major League Baseball Players Association before offering Germán a contract.

Germán threw the 24th perfect game in major league history in New York's 11-0 victory at Oakland on June 28. He was 5-7 with a 4.56 ERA in 19 starts and one relief appearance last season before going on the restricted list.

The decision to enter treatment was the latest turn for Germán, who served a 10-game suspension in May after getting ejected from a game in Toronto for using an illegal sticky substance on the mound. He also was banned for 81 games by Major League Baseball earlier in his career following an allegation of domestic violence.

The framework of Germán's deal with the Pirates includes a $1.25 million salary this season plus performance bonuses and includes a club option for 2025 worth $2.25 million.

Germán is 31-28 with a 4.41 ERA in six seasons, all with the Yankees. More than half his wins as a starter came in 2019, when he went 18-4.

Pittsburgh needs help in the starting rotation behind Mitch Keller and recently acquired veterans Martin Perez and Marco Gonzales. Prospect Paul Skenes -- the top overall pick in last year's amateur draft -- is going to start the season in the minors.

Pittsburgh opens the 2024 season at Miami on March 28.
