Hanrahan agrees to one-year deal
The Pirates announced this morning that they have signed closer Joel Hanrahan to a one-year deal. Hanrahan was eligible for arbitration this winter, though this will allow the team and Hanrahan to avoid an arbitration hearing. The deal is worth $4.1 million, with performance incentives totaling $50,000.
With Hanrahan now signed, the Pirates have five remaining unsigned arbitration-eligible players: Evan Meek, Jeff Karstens, Charlie Morton, Casey McGehee and Garrett Jones. Players and teams will exchange salary figures on Wednesday. Arbitration hearings for those who still don’t sign will then take place Feb. 1-21.
