Pirates Sign Paul Maholm to Three-Year Deal

New, 7 comments

Not many details yet, but the Pirates have an option for a fourth year, which would buy out Maholm's first year of free agency, which is nice. The terms of these sorts of deals are usually favorable, but in this case, I'll have to see them--Maholm isn't a dominant starting pitcher, and the rules state that no more than two Pirates starters can perform well each year.
