The 1993 Pittsburgh Pirates season saw the three-time defending National League East champions fall to 5th place in the division. In the offseason, the National League expanded to 14 teams and Barry Bonds left the Pirates and signed with the San Francisco Giants. This season was the first of their record of twenty straight losing seasons.
