Pirates ink Ledezma
The Pirates have avoided arbitration with lefty reliever Wil Ledezma by coming to an agreement on a one-year contract for 2011. The value of the deal was not immediately known.
Ledezma began 2010 in Triple-A, where he stayed until being called up to Pittsburgh in late July. In 19 2/3 innings with the Pirates, Ledezma allowed 25 hits and 15 earned runs. He struck out 22 and walked six.
Ledezma was considered a possible non-tender candidate before reaching this agreement with the club.
