The Pirates have officially signed Brandon Inge to a minor league deal with an invitation to Major League Spring Training, reports Tom Singer of MLB.com (via Twitter). ACES represents Inge.
Inge elected to sign with the Pirates after it was reported there were two teams vying for the third baseman's services. The 35-year-old will provide Pittsburgh with a veteran bat off the bench.
CBSSports.com's Danny Knobler first reported that a deal was imminent.
