Ohlendorf won his arbitration case against the Pirates.

According to Colin Dunlap, Ross Ohlendorf has won his arbitration case against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  The decision means that Ohlendorf will receive $2.025 M for his 2011 salary.  That’s a raise of $1,586,000 over his 2010 salary, and an extra $625,000 over the $1.4 M the Pirates were offering.

The 2011 40-man roster/payroll projection is updated.  The Pirates are now right under $40 M with this change.

Going forward, there are a few expected additions which could raise this number:

-One of the Andy Marte/Josh Fields/Garrett Atkins group could win a bench role.

-Joe Beimel will most likely win a bullpen role.

-Jose Veras could win a bullpen role.

Those moves could raise the payroll up an additional $2.3 M, putting the estimated opening day payroll around $42 M.

  1. Tim, love the book. I was so excited to find out about the tickets. Thank you so much. I would love it even more if Michael Young were there. Doumit for Young, Bucs take on the entire salary. Young at short this year, at third next year, traded year three when Rendon is ready.
