Pittsburgh Pirates Sign David Freese

The Bucs just signed David Freese for 2016 at $3 million.  Boy, that’s a great economical contract for the team.

The odds that Freese will be a bargain for the Pirates at this price is enormous.  Fangraphs says that Freese has been worth more than $15 million for four of the last five seasons.  Freese’s contract with the Bucs is less than half what the Angels paid him last year, when fangraphs says his value was $17.9 million.

If Freese stays healthy, even at age 33, the odds are extremely strong that he’ll give the Bucs eight-digit production.  Even if he is used exclusively as a right-handed platoon player, he’ll be worth well more than what the Pirates will be paying him.
