Pirates Sign Jason Grilli to One Year Deal

by @ 9:18 am. Filed under 2012 Pirates

The Pirates got some solid production from Jason Grilli last year after he joined the team mid-stream in 2011 and they resigned him to a one year deal.  He’ll be paid $1.1 million and by the end of the year, he was being used as the team’s set up man.  He struck out 37 in 32 2/3 innings with a 2.48 ERA.

I like the move because it’s low cost and you can’t go wrong with these little one year deals.  There’s a pretty good chance that Grilli reprises his role as the set-up in 2012 with Jose Veras being gone.  Evan Meek is another option but he had a tough time last year.
