PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Pirates have reportedly avoided arbitration with their closer.

ESPN’s Keith Law announced on Twitter that the Pirates and Joel Hanrahan have agreed to a one-year deal.

The deal avoids arbitration and is believed to be worth $4.1 million, but that number has not been confirmed by the team.

In 68 2-3 innings pitched, Hanrahan had 40 saves to go along with a 1.83 ERA, 61 strikeouts and only 16 walks.

Hanrahan made $1.4 million last season.

According to our news partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Evan Meek, Charlie Morton, Jeff Karstens, Garrett Jones and Casey McGehee are still eligible for arbitration.
