Ryan Doumit Expected to Make Decision Today

Published:

We’ve heard for the last week that former Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Ryan Doumit was expected to sign a deal before the end of November.  Jerry Crasnick has an update today that Doumit is down to two American League teams, and is expected to make a decision today.  What this means for the Pirates is that they’d get a compensation pick between the first and second rounds of the 2012 draft.  The deadline to offer arbitration to ranked free agents is on Wednesday, November 23rd.  If Doumit signs today, the Pirates could offer arbitration with no risk that he’d accept the offer, thus giving the team a compensation pick.
