The Pirates have agreed on 2013 contracts with Neil Walker and James McDonald, settling their two remaining arbitration cases.
The Pirates have signed Neil Walker and James McDonald, avoiding arbitration. No details are available as yet.
UPDATE by Charlie: Tom Singer makes it sound like Walker's deal was for about $3.3 million. If that's the case, that's more than Walker was projected to get, but it's right between the figure Walker filed ($3.6 million) and what the Pirates offered ($3 million).
UPDATE by Charlie: Rob Biertempfel reports that Walker will make $3.3 million and McDonald will make $3.025 million.
