Pirates sign Cedeno to one-year deal

Ronny Cedeno.jpgRonny Cedeno avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Pirates, reports Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Cedeno made $822,500 last season.



Cedeno, who turns 27 in February,
batted .208/.256/.337 with 10 home runs and 38 RBI in 341 at-bats
between the Mariners and Pirates in ’09. It isn’t saying much, but he
was markedly better after coming over in the Jack Wilson trade in July,
batting .258/.307/.394. Still, he has a pretty sad
career line of .240/.280/.346 through 1,353 plate appearances in the
majors.




Just because Cedeno signed a new
deal doesn’t mean he’s guaranteed the everyday shortstop job in
Pittsburgh. The recent signing of Bobby Crosby is a pretty clear indication
that the Pirates aren’t completely sold on him.
