Pirates and Ohlendorf Go To Arbitration

Ohlendorf and the Pirates had an arbitration hearing today.

Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated tweets that the arbitration hearing between Ross Ohlendorf and the Pittsburgh Pirates is today.  The two sides exchanged figures a few weeks ago, with the Pirates submitting a $1.4 M figure, and Ohlendorf submitting a $2.025 M figure.

The Pirates can still sign Ohlendorf up until the minute before the arbitration hearing begins.  If the hearing takes place, both sides will argue their case for their respective offers, and the arbitrator will pick one of the two offers for Ohlendorf’s 2011 salary.  In either case, Ohlendorf’s 2011 salary will be determined today.

The last time the Pirates went to arbitration with a player was in 2004, with Jack Wilson.

UPDATE 7:37 PM: Colin Dunlap reports that the two sides did go to arbitration today, and that a decision is expected on Wednesday.

I’m not saying that Travis Snider wasn’t an okay acquisition but I do not like that our bullpen is without Jeff Lincoln. Our bullpen has turned to crap since the trade deadline – our offense is still highly questionable, especially against quality pitchers.

Lee Young

You mean the Lincoln that has given up 6 runs in 9 inn and would’ve given up more if not for that incredible highlight reel catch by Rajai Davis saving a HR?

That Brad Lincoln?

Actually, that was the only deal I DID like. Altho, I am warming up to Gaby.

Tim, just bought my copy of the book! Can’t wait to read. Wondering when I could expect it to the Pittsburgh area
