Pirates, Ryan Borucki settle
The Pirates were also able to agree to terms on a contract with one of their arbitration eligible players for 2024. This player was left-handed reliever Ryan Borucki. According to Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Borucki's deal for 2024 will be worth $1.6 million.
With this, Borucki will be able to avoid arbitration this offseason. This is a well deserved pay raise for the 29-year-old lefty who had a great, breakout season with the Pirates in 2023.
In 40.1 innings pitched, Borucki posted a career best 2.45 ERA and 3.50 FIP. He walked just 2.6% of batters faced, limited home runs to a 0.89 HR/9 rate, and struck out 21.7% of opposing batters. With this, Borucki solidified himself as a key cog in the Pirate bullpen entering 2024.
