The Pittsburgh Pirates have avoided arbitration with first baseman Gaby Sanchez, according to the Beverly Hills Sports Council, which represents Sanchez.

No word yet on the terms of the deal. Sanchez was projected to make $2.3 M through arbitration this year. The Pirates now have four remaining players eligible for arbitration. Today is the deadline for players and teams to exchange arbitration figures. I'd expect a few more deals to come.

UPDATE 11:36 AM: Jon Heyman reports that Sanchez got $2.3 M, which was his projected price.
