Pirates Sign Eric Hinske

8:46pm: Kovacevic says pitcher T.J. Beam was designated for assignment by the Pirates to make room for Hinske.  Beam, 28, posted a 4.14 ERA and 4.7 K/9 in 45.6 innings for the Bucs this year.

12:45pm: According to Dejan Kovacevic, the Pirates announced the signing of Eric Hinske today.  He'll earn $1.5MM plus a possible $1MM in incentives.

Hinske was one of the best free agent bargains a year ago, as he hit .247/.333/.465 for the Rays at an $800K salary.  He'll be a useful, versatile player for the Bucs if kept away from lefties.
