Pirates Sign Jeff Karstens and Evan Meek to One Year Deals

by @ 5:55 am. Filed under 2012 Pirates

The Pirates locked up a couple of arbitration eligible players and that’ll limit the number of times they’ll have to go to the table. Jeff Karstens was given a $3.1 million deal and Evan Meek was given an $875,000 deal.  Karstens was solid in 162 2/3 innings and he’ll most likely be in the rotation again in 2012.  Evan Meek was solid in limited time with the Pirates in 2011 but he had a nice season for them in 2010.

That leaves two arbitration eligible players left to sign.  Garret Jones and Casey McGehee could both end up at the arbitration table but hopefully it won’t come to that.  Since Neal Huntington took over as the GM, they’ve only had to go to the arbitration table once.
