Jason Grilli re-signs with Pirates

New, 199 comments

Jason Grilli reportedly has agreed to re-sign with the Pirates. As of yet, there is no denial from Grilli.

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Two years. Who knows, maybe it's real this time.

Oh, and Grilli's agent is Gary Sheffield.

UPDATE by Charlie: Grilli gets two years and $6.75 million, which is a terrific price in this market. He evidently turned down more money from the Blue Jays. Any multi-year contract for a 36-year-old reliever worries me a little, but this looks like a very good deal for the Pirates. I assume the Bucs will shop Joel Hanrahan pretty aggressively now, although whether they actually trade him is a different question.
