Andrew McCutchen Apparently Won't Qualify For Super Two Status

Tim Dierkes tweets that he is hearing that the Super Two cutoff is looking like 2.145 years of service time in order for a second year player to be eligible for arbitration. Dierkes was one of the first to recently break the news about Jose Tabata's contract extension talks. This is significant for the Pirates because coming into the season Andrew McCutchen had 1.123 years of service time and Garrett Jones had 1.158 years of service time. Under this scenario Cutch would not be eligible for Super Two status and would be renewed again at around a $500,000 salary unless the PIrates decided on their own to give him a raise or the two sides reached a long-term agreement, which doesn't seem likely at this point. Jones, on the other hand, would qualify and could go to arbitration if no agreement is reached with the club.
