Pirates Tender All Arbitration Eligible Players

The Pittsburgh Pirates have tendered all of their arbitration eligible players, per a team press release.  The team also announced that Pedro Ciriaco and Jason Jaramillo will officially become free agents at midnight after being non-tendered by the team. All of the remaining 0-3 players who weren’t under contract were tendered an offer.

The arbitration eligible players who we were waiting on were Joel Hanrahan, Charlie Morton, Jeff Karstens, Chris Resop, Evan Meek, Garrett Jones, and the newly added Casey McGehee.

    I’m surprised no team has taken a shot at Jaramillo. He is better than his numbers show. I’d also be surprised if the Pirates don’t try to bring him back on a minor league contract at least.

      except that the pirates have loaded themselves with minor league catchers, including 2 more in the rule5 drafts…  JJ is gone.
