Ross Ohlendorf Signs With Red Sox; Pirates Arbitration Results
The Pirates released Ohlendorf in December after an injury-riddled 2011 campaign resulted in a 1-3 record with an 8.15 ERA over 38.2 innings with the Pirates.
In four seasons with Pittsburgh, Ohlendorf went 13-27 and posted a 4.60 ERA. He will forever be remembered as the pitcher who won his arbitration case against the Pirates despite posting a 1-11 record on the season in 2010.
The Pirates were scheduled to go to arbitration with newly acquired first baseman Casey McGehee next week, but the two sides have reportedly reached a deal. McGehee’s side had submitted a proposed salary of $2.725 million, while the Pirates had offered $2.35 million.
They settled at their midpoint of $2,537,500, according to Pirates Prospects.
The arbitration hearing for Garrett Jones was conducted this morning. The Pirates won the case and will pay Jones their proposed amount of $2.25 million. The left-handed hitter requested a $2.5 million contract.
Jones made $455,500 last season.
