Pirates and Ohlendorf Go To Arbitration

Ohlendorf and the Pirates had an arbitration hearing today.

Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated tweets that the arbitration hearing between Ross Ohlendorf and the Pittsburgh Pirates is today.  The two sides exchanged figures a few weeks ago, with the Pirates submitting a $1.4 M figure, and Ohlendorf submitting a $2.025 M figure.

The Pirates can still sign Ohlendorf up until the minute before the arbitration hearing begins.  If the hearing takes place, both sides will argue their case for their respective offers, and the arbitrator will pick one of the two offers for Ohlendorf’s 2011 salary.  In either case, Ohlendorf’s 2011 salary will be determined today.

The last time the Pirates went to arbitration with a player was in 2004, with Jack Wilson.

UPDATE 7:37 PM: Colin Dunlap reports that the two sides did go to arbitration today, and that a decision is expected on Wednesday.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.

I’m not saying that Travis Snider wasn’t an okay acquisition but I do not like that our bullpen is without Jeff Lincoln. Our bullpen has turned to crap since the trade deadline – our offense is still highly questionable, especially against quality pitchers.

Lee Young

You mean the Lincoln that has given up 6 runs in 9 inn and would’ve given up more if not for that incredible highlight reel catch by Rajai Davis saving a HR?

That Brad Lincoln?

Actually, that was the only deal I DID like. Altho, I am warming up to Gaby.
