Pirates OF Gerut signs one-year contract

December 27, 2005


PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Outfielder Jody Gerut signed an $875,000, one-year contract Tuesday with the Pittsburgh Pirates.


He made $356,200 last season for the Cleveland Indians, Chicago Cubs and Pirates. He was dealt by Chicago to Pittsburgh for outfielder Matt Lawton on July 31, but a knee injury limited Gerut to 18 at-bats with the Pirates.


Gerut, expected to compete for the right field job, could make an additional $75,000 in bonuses based on plate appearances.


He batted .253 with one homer and 14 RBIs in 170 at-bats overall. He hit .279 with 22 homers and 75 RBIs in 127 games with Cleveland as a rookie in 2003.


He had been eligible for salary arbitration.
