The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to a minor league contract with free agent lefty Jo-Jo Reyes, according to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com. The deal is reportedly a split contract with an invitation to Spring Training that includes incentives should Reyes land a job with the Pirates, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLBTR.

Reyes, 27, spent his entire career in the Atlanta Braves organization before landing with the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles last season. He pitched a career-high 140.2 innings in the majors last season between those two teams, posting a 5.57 ERA. His peripheral statistics were a bit stronger, though, as his xFIP was 4.58 and he posted a decent K/BB ratio.

Over 334 innings in the majors, Reyes has really struggled, posting a 6.05 ERA due to some serious issues with walks and home runs. He's been significantly better in the minor leagues, though, posting a 3.11 ERA over 188 innings in Triple-A.
