Pirates avoid arbitration with reliever Resop
By Cash Kruth / MLB.com
Resop, 29, went 5-4 with a 4.39 ERA in 76 games with the Bucs last season, his first full year in Pittsburgh. The Pirates claimed him off waivers in August of 2010 after he was released by the Braves.
Resop has posted a 4.81 ERA in 156 games during a six-year career that began with the Marlins.
