Pirates Win Arbitration Over Garrett Jones; Avoid Arb with McGehee

The Pittsburgh Pirates have won their arbitration case with Garrett Jones and will only have to pay $2.25 million, according to the team. Jones was most recently mentioned in a potential trade for A.J. Burnett from the Yankees, but the Pirates were reportedly cold on the idea.

The Pirates also signed Casey McGehee to a contract to avoid arbitration, according to the team. Rob Biertempfel says the contract is for one year and is worth $2.5375 million, right at the midpoint.
