Pirates and Casey McGehee avoid arbitration

First Garrett Jones, now this.  We are officially your go-to source for Pittsburgh Pirates arbitration news. Accept no substitutes.

Anyway, yes: the Pirates and their new third baseman Casey McGehee avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal.

The amount: $2.5375 million. Which makes sense. McGehee had requested $2.725 million and the Pirates countered with $2.35 million.  So unless one of the sides was REALLY bad at negotiation, you’d have to assume that the final number was gonna be somewhere between those two.
Would have been awesome if it came in at, like, $375K and the agent got fired.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
