The Pittsburgh Pirates re-signed veteran free agent shortstop Clint Barmes on Thursday, according to multiple media reports.
The terms are not yet known.
The 34-year-old Barmes, who is mostly valued as an excellent defensive shortstop, hit .211 in 304 at-bats for the Pirates last year, splitting time at shortstop with Jordy Mercer.
