The Pirates announced that they have signed outfielder/first baseman Corey Hart to a one-year deal. He will be making 2.5 million base salary with 2.5 million in incentives.

Hart, 32, struggled in Seattle last year after playing in over 8 seasons with the Brewers slashing just .203/.271/.319 with 6 home runs, 21 RBI and a .590 OPS in 68 games. He was designated for assignment late in the season as the Mariners were making a run for the second wild card.

Hart had a 117 wRC+, 14.9 fWAR in 900+ career games with Milwaukee before signing with the Mariners before the 2014 season. Steamer projects Hart to have a 110 wRC+, 1.0 fWAR in 2015 while slashing .251/.316/.435/.751.
