Pirates, Jason Grilli agree to terms on a $1.1MM deal for 2011, I have learned.— Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith) December 13, 2011
Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors reports. This means Grilli won't be non-tendered, obviously. It's interesting that this news came out just after the Casey McGehee / Jose Veras trade broke - I wonder if the Pirates would have non-tendered Grilli if Veras hadn't been traded. Anyway, Grilli was very effective in 2011 and could be a bargain at $1.1 million. UPDATE: The Pirates have confirmed this.
