No team in Major League Baseball counts their pennies quite like the Pittsburgh Pirates. However, even they won’t be able to use finances as an excuse when it comes to salary arbitration this upcoming offseason.
The Pirates have six players eligible for arbitration in right-handers JT Brubaker, Mitch Keller, Robert Stephenson and Duane Underwood Jr. and infielders Miguel Andujar and Kevin Newman.
None of them are expected to break the bank even if they wind up going to hearings.
Major League Baseball Trade Rumors released its annual salary arbitration projections Monday, as Pittsburgh Baseball Now’s Danny Demilio reported. The six players on the Pirates’ list are expected to make a total of $11.8 million next season.
