Pirates Agree to Terms With All of Their Pre-Arbitration Players

The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to terms with all 24 of their pre-arbitration players on the 40-man roster, plus Chase d’Arnaud, who agreed to terms prior to being designated for assignment. This is kind of non-news, since the process of “agreeing to terms” with these players involves the Pirates saying “this is what we’re going to pay you this year”. No terms have been announced, and terms don’t usually come out until Opening Day, when USA Today released their team payrolls.

Here is the list of players who have agreed to terms.

Cole, Gerrit
Cumpton, Brandon
d’Arnaud, Chase
Decker, Jaff
Gomez. Jeanmar
Hanson, Alen
Harrison, Josh
Hughes, Jared
Irwin, Phil
Lambo, Andrew
Locke, Jeff
Marte, Starling
McGuiness, Chris
Mercer, Jordy
Morel, Brent
Morris, Bryan
Oliver, Andy
Pimentel, Stolmy
Polanco, Gregory
Rodriguez, Joely
Sadler, Casey
Sanchez, Tony
Watson, Tony
Welker, Duke
Wilson, Justin
