The Pirates avoided arbitration with Chris Resop and they agreed on a one year deal with the reliever. We don’t have the numbers but my guess is, it was a little less than, but right around a million. Resop was scooped up by the Pirates off of waivers in 2010 and had his moments with 79 strikeouts in 69 2/3 innings.
Walks have been a concern with Resop in the past but in 2011, he had one of his best walk rates ever. If he can get that under control, then this guy is a keeper. He also had an unusually high .344 batting average on balls in play in 2011 but his career mark is .330 so that’s not too out of whack.
