Player Notes
Tony Watson requested $6 million and was offered $5.6 million by the Pirates when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

Advice: Watson ascended to the closer's role in the Pirates' bullpen in 2016 after Mark Melancon was dealt to the Nationals, and he stumbled a bit with three blown saves in 18 chances. He's projected by MLBTradeRumors.com to earn $5.9 million in arbitration, which is a bit closer to Watson's figure than the team's.
