Pirates Reach Agreement With Scott Olsen

No financial details were released, and the deal isn't official until the left-handed starter passes a physical exam. Given Olsen's history of shoulder problems, a successful result with the doctor isn't necessarily a given. Olsen has been on the team's radar for some time, as you may recall from Charlie's earlier post on the subject. Olsen's 2011 ZiPS projection calls for a 4.83 ERA (85 ERA+) and 1.42 WHIP in 119 1/3 innings, although that projection was tailored to a Washington-specific environment. Update: According to Mets writer Howard Megdal, it's a one year deal for $1M. Update 2: Per Dejan, the deal also includes some fairly substantial incentives.
