Player is in a pre-arbitration year; contract is Major League minimum unless otherwise noted


Player is arbitration eligible; salary, if noted, = arbitration results


Player is under contract


Either the Pirates or the player may exercise an option; details provided below the chart

























1 The Pirates pay $8,000,000 of Burnett’s 2013 contract.
2 The Pirates pay $8,500,000 of Rodriguez’s 2013 contract. Rodriguez’s option became a player option when he was traded by Houston; the Pirates will pay $7,500,000 if the option is exercised.
3 Morton is unlikely to be available before June, 2013.
4 Liriano is guaranteed only $1 million in 2013; however, if he does not miss any games due to his broken right (non-throwing) arm, he can earn up to $4.75 million. The Pirates have a team option for 2014; that option will be for $5, 6, or 8 million depending upon missed games due to Liriano’s broken right arm.
