UPDATE 11:47 a.m.: LaRoche is not in the lineup just posted.
11:58 a.m.: Word is that a LaRoche trade already is done, but this is unconfirmed. It also has not been denied by anyone with the team, either.
12:02 p.m.: Speculation among baseball people here from other teams is that LaRoche has been traded to the San Francisco Giants. Again, I stress, unconfirmed.
12:12 p.m.: LaRoche has been traded to the Boston Red Sox. No word on return yet. Still no official word of any kind from the team.
He never became a fan favorite, and his contract is about to end.
Garrett Jones would presumably take over at 1B for the rest of this year. With 8 home runs in 16 games (.286/.348/.746) he has the most homers of anyone on the Pirates if LaRoche and McLouth are both gone.
