PITTSBURGH (AP) — Recently acquired third baseman Miguel Andújar and the Pittsburgh Pirates agreed to a $1,525,000, one-year contract on Friday.

Andújar, claimed off waivers from the New York Yankees on Sept. 25, hit .250 with nine RBIs in nine games with the Pirates. His salary was $1.3 million this season.

Pittsburgh also tendered 2023 contracts to six arbitration-eligible players: starting pitchers J.T. Brubaker and Mitch Keller, relievers Robert Stephenson and Duane Underwood Jr., shortstop Kevin Newman and first baseman Ji-Man Choi, who was brought over from Tampa Bay last week.

The Pirates, coming off a second straight 100-loss season (62-100), did not offer contracts to catcher Tyler Heineman and reliever Manny Bañuelos.
