Found December 12, 2011 on Pirates Prospects:
The deadline to tender offers to arbitration eligible players is at midnight tonight. The Pittsburgh Pirates have eight players who are eligible for arbitration. Here is a rundown of what to expect by the end of the night, along with projected arbitration values, as projected by MLB Trade Rumors. Joel Hanrahan – $4,000,000 Hanrahan is a lock to be tendered. He’s a huge value for his production out of the closer role, priced at almost $5 M less than what he might get on the open market. Jeff Karstens – $2,800,000 You have to tender Karstens after the season he had in 2011. Maybe it wasn’t fully legit, and he’s probably due for a regression from his 3.38 ERA.  His advanced metrics suggested he won’t see a huge decline, with a 4.00 xFIP. That would be worth $2.8 M. Jose Veras – $2,500,000 Of all of the relievers the Pirates have, Veras is the guy I see them non-tendering.  The only way I see him sticking around is through a deal before the deadline tomorrow. Otherwise it would be a was...

Brewers trade 3B McGehee to Pirates for RHP Veras

The Pittsburgh Pirates have acquired third baseman Casey McGehee from the Milwaukee Brewers in a trade for reliever Jose Veras. The move came hours after the Brewers agreed to terms with free-agent third baseman Aramis Ramirez on Monday. McGehee had a strong rookie season in 2009 and a big year in 2010 but then slumped at the plate in 2011 and lost his starting job to Jerry Hairston...

Pirates Trade Jose Veras for Casey McGehee

The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded relief pitcher Jose Veras to the Milwaukee Brewers for third baseman Casey McGehee, per a team press release. Veras was profiled as a non-tender candidate in my article earlier today. McGehee, meanwhile, became expendable when Milwaukee signed Aramis Ramirez to a three year deal earlier this afternoon. McGehee is coming off a year where he hit for...

Pirates trade Jose Veras to Brewers for Casey McGehee

tweeted: With Jose Veras likely on his way out at tonight’s arbitration deadline, the Pirates were able to flip him to Milwaukee (of all places) for Casey McGehee. McGehee, 29, is pretty much the definition of this Pedro Alvarez “contingency plan” we’ve been hearing about. He’s primarily a third baseman (although he has played a few games at first) and will be seeing a...

Pirates tender contracts to Jones, Resop, all others

The Bucs tendered contracts to Joel Hanrahan, Charlie Morton, Chris Resop, Jeff Karstens, Evan Meek, and Garrett Jones ahead of the midnight deadline. They will all be back with the team next season. So will Jason Grilli, who agreed to a $1.1 million deal. The Bucs also tendered a contract to the newly acquired Casey McGehee, who is arbitration eligible.  If you missed it, McGehee...

Brewers Trade Casey McGehee to the Pirates for Jose Veras

Nobody ever accused Milwaukee Brewers GM Doug Melvin of being slow to the trigger. Hours after signing Aramis Ramirez to be the Brewers' third baseman for the next three years, Melvin traded the incumbent at third, Casey McGehee, to the Pirates in exchange for reliever Jose Veras, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt. The move seemingly clears the...

Brewers trade McGehee to Pirates for reliever Veras

Brewers trade McGehee for surprisingly useful reliever

This probably shouldn't be as much of a surprise as it was, but the Brewers capped off a busy day by trading Casey McGehee to the Pittsburgh Pirates for reliever Jose Veras. With Aramis Ramirez signing with the Brewers earlier in the day and the non-tender deadline at 11 p.m. Central, today seemed like a good bet to be McGehee's last with the Brewers one way or another...

We already know that Jose Veras has been traded to the Brewers for Casey McGehee, who will presumably be tendered.We also know that the Pirates signed Jason Grilli to a one-year/$1.1 million deal.
