A look at arbitration figures
Garrett Jones and Casey McGehee are the only two arbitration-eligible players who have still not signed with the Pirates. They have exchanged figures with the team and here are those figures:
Jones, who made $455,500 in 2011, has asked for $2.5 million. The Pirates have submitted a salary of $2.25 million. McGehee, who made $478,000 in 2011, has asked for $2.725 million. The Pirates have submitted a salary of $2.35 million.
Both players can continue to negotiate with the club all the way up until their arbitration hearings, which will be scheduled sometime during the first three weeks of February.
For those who may have missed it, the Pirates came to terms on one-year deals with Joel Hanrahan ($4.1 million), Jeff Karstens ($3.1 million), Evan Meek ($875,000) and Charlie Morton ($2.445 million) already this week.
