News
Hughes agreed to a one-year, $2.825 million contract with the Pirates on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

He missed the first month of 2016 with a back injury and finished with just four holds in 67 appearances after racking up 21 holds in 2015, as the Pirates used him primarily in low-leverage spots. Hughes' ratios have gotten progressively worse in recent seasons and his 4.68 FIP from last year suggests his ERA could have been a lot worse.

News
The Pirates and Watson were unable to reach agreement over a new contract prior to the Friday deadline and will head to arbitration, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Watson, who will become a free agent following the 2017 season, was reportedly offered only a one-year deal. It's apparent that the southpaw's time in Pittsburgh is dwindling and it wouldn't be surprising to see the team's current closer traded. Teams such as the Mariners have inquired as to his availability. Felipe Rivero and Juan Nicasio would become candidates for saves in the event Watson is dealt.

News
Mercer and the Pirates avoided arbitration on Friday and settled on a $4.325 million deal, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.

Mercer posted a .256/.328/.374 line well within career norms in 2016 and was rewarded with a raise of more than $2 million. He's on track to hit free agency before the 2019 season at the age of 32.

News
Kingham (elbow) is poised to make his major league debut at some point in 2017 after missing most of the last two seasons following Tommy John surgery, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports. "Finally got a normal offseason," said Kingham. "Finished up healthy toward the end of the year, last month and a half or so. Excited to come into spring training full-go and see what happens."

The 25-year-old, who's compiled a career 3.32 ERA in 580.2 minor-league innings, offers upside as a potential middle of the rotation starter. Kingham possesses excellent command of three pitches and holds a career 3:1 K:BB. He's expected to begin the season with Triple-A Indianapolis after totaling only 77.1 IP since 2014. The 6-foot-6 righty is hoping to following in his roommate Jameson Taillon's footsteps. "Kinda looking into the progression that Taillon has gone through is definitely a good way to expect what will happen to me," Kingham said. "I saw what he did last year, when he came into spring training. I just want to follow in his footsteps and do what he did."

News
Nicasio and the Pirates avoided arbitration and agreed to a $3.65 million deal on Friday, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

The Pirates gave Nicasio a try in the rotation in 2016, hoping he could be another bargain-bin reclamation project, before eventually moving him back into the bullpen. While he might not be a real starter, he put up a 2.96 ERA after his return to the bullpen, so he seems to be at least an effective reliever.

News
Cole avoided arbitration with the Pirates on Friday by signing a $3.75 million deal, Rob Biertempfel of the Piitsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Cole stumbled in 2016, posting a career-high 3.88 ERA in 116 innings and eventually having to be shut down with an elbow injury. The injury reportedly doesn't involve any ligament damage, but it remains a risk factor going forward. All things considered, it's a decent showing in Cole's first round of arbitration and a reward for an excellent 2015 season when he finished fourth in the Cy Young voting.
