Pirates May Re-Sign Michaels, Mientkiewicz

According to MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch, the Pirates would like to re-sign veteran role players Jason Michaels and Doug Mientkiewicz (Dejan Kovacevic reported this a few weeks ago).

Langosch says Michaels' $2.6MM option will be declined, but he could re-sign for less to stay on as the team's fourth outfielder.  Michaels, 32, hit .224/.292/.360 in 321 plate appearances this year.  There are better ways to spend a million bucks.

Mientkiewicz, 34, hit .277/.374/.379 in 334 plate appearances.  He's a fine defensive first baseman and even pitched in at third.  He also provided spark to the Pirates' clubhouse.  Bringing him back makes sense at the right price.
