- The Pittsburgh Pirates offered prospect Gregory Polanco a seven-year extension this offseason, as written about by our own Justin Millar (and reported by Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan):
The Pittsburgh Pirates reportedly offered top prospect Gregory Polanco a seven-year deal despite the fact that he has yet to reach the big leagues. According to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan (who first reported the story), the contract would've guaranteed the young outfielder slightly less than $25 million, buying out all six year's of team control, as well as a free agent season. The deal would have also netted Pittsburgh three club options, which would have brought the total (were all exercised) to ten years and $50-$60 million.
