PITTSBURGH — Newly acquired third baseman Miguel Andujar and the Pittsburgh Pirates agreed on Friday to a one-year, $1,525,000 contract.
Andujar, who was waived by the New York Yankees on September 25, hit .250 with nine RBIs in nine games with the Pirates. His salary this season was $1.3 million.
Pittsburgh also offered contracts for 2023 to six arbitrage-eligible players: starting pitchers J.T. Brubaker and Mitch Keller, pitchers Robert Stephenson and Dwayne Underwood Jr., shortstop Kevin Newman, and first baseman G-Man Choi, who was delivered from Tampa Bay last week.
The Pirates, after losing their second consecutive 100-loss season (62–100), did not offer contracts to catcher Tyler Hyneman and reliever Manny Banuelos.
