Bucs to keep Tsutsugo

PITTSBURGH — According to reports by ESPN, the Pittsburgh Pirates are bringing back Yoshi Tsutsugo on a one-year, $4 million deal.

Tsutsugo is listed as a first baseman-outfielder.

The deal cannot be finalized until after a physical has been done.

Tsutsugo, 29, joined the Pirates in August after being released by the Dodgers, who had acquired the slugger from Tampa Bay. In the final six weeks of the season, he hit .268 with eight home runs and 25 RBIs in 43 games while splitting time between first base, left field and right field.
