Pirates' George Kontos: Agrees to terms with Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kontas agreed to a one-year, $2.725 million contract with the Pirates on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The right-hander turned in a 1.84 ERA in 15 appearances after coming over to Pittsburgh on a waiver claim in early August, compared to a 3.83 ERA in 50 appearances with San Francisco. He altered his pitch mix a bit after the move and what resulted was fewer walks (1.8 BB/9) and homers allowed (0.61 HR/9). Kontos will likely fill a setup role to begin 2018.

Pirates' George Kontos: Reinstated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kontos (groin) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Thursday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Kontos was able to get through a 20-pitch simulated game with no issues Tuesday, clearing the way for him to return before Thursday's series finale against the Cubs. The 32-year-old, who owns a 3.65 ERA through 56.2 innings this season, should immediately return to pitching high-leverage innings for the Pirates.

Pirates' George Kontos: Tosses simulated game Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kontos (groin) was able to toss a 20-pitch simulated game prior to Tuesday's contest, and should be activated within the next couple days, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

This marked the first time that Kontos threw off the mound since landing on the DL on Aug. 22, and he felt fine following the brief outing. According to head athletic trainer Todd Tomczyk, the right-hander is on the verge of returning to the big-league club, and should be able to slide right back into high-leverage roles for the Pirates' bullpen upon his reinstatement.

Pirates' George Kontos: Plays catch Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kontos (groin) played catch and threw off the slope of a mound Wednesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Kontos was hoping for a minimal stay on the 10-day DL, but he's progressing a little slower than expected. The reliever is eligible to return from the disabled list whenever he's ready, but seeing as Wednesday was his first time throwing off the slope of a mound since landing on the disabled list, he'll need a little more time before rejoining the big-league bullpen.

Pirates' George Kontos: Could return before September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kontos (groin) will resume baseball activities Friday with hopes of coming off the disabled list when eligible on Aug. 30, Pirates Prospects reports.

Pittsburgh trainer Todd Tomczyk characterized the righty's groin strain as minor. Kontos has allowed one run in five games (five innings) since coming to the Pirates, recording three holds and one blown save. He's also one of the few relievers signed by the Bucs for 2018.
