Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors reports that the Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to a pre-arbitration deal with relief pitcher Jason Grilli for $1.1 M. The deal is about $300 K more than the MLBTR estimate for Grilli. The Pirates acquired Grilli from Philadelphia last year due to a clause in Grilli’s contract that said the Phillies had to release him if another team wanted him on their major league club. After joining the Pirates he put up a 2.48 ERA in 32.2 innings, with a 37:15 K/BB ratio.
