Jeff Karstens and Pirates Agree to Terms

This is nice to see.


In an off season that has pretty much been the definition of “meh,” this is a move that makes some sense. Jeff Karstens, when healthy has been a very solid pitcher of the previous seasons and the Pirates are in need of some starting pitching.

In 19 games (15 starts) last season, Karstens posted a 3.97 ERA and 66:15 K:BB ratio over 90 2/3 innings. After starting the season on the disabled list due to right shoulder inflammation, his season was cut short thanks to a strained hip flexor muscle.

The deal is pending a physical and Karstens looks to make $2.5 to $3 million once the details are announced.
