Charlie Morton avoided arbitration today by agreeing to a one year deal with the Pirates worth $2.445 million. Charlie is currently working through off season hip surgery, but showed his electric stuff last season by posting career highs in strikeouts, innings pitched, wins, ERA, WHIP, and complete games.
Here's hoping to a speedy recovery from Ground Chuck and continued improvement in 2012.
To celebrate Charlie's arbitration victory, here's an ebay victory of my own.
