Bucs give Gorzelanny a $33K raise
BRADENTON, Fla. - After leading the Pirates with 14 victories last season, left-hander Tom Gorzelanny will get a $33,000 raise in 2008.
The Pirates have begun renewing the contracts of players with less than three years' experience in the majors, the so-called 0-to-3 players. Gorzelanny, the likely Opening Day pitcher, will make $419,000 this season. Gorzelanny earned $386,000 in 2007.
Catcher/outfielder Ryan Doumit will get $412,000 this year, a raise of $22,000. Nyjer Morgan, who is vying for the starting job in center field, will make $391,000.
Pitcher Bryan Bullington, a former first-round draft pick, will make $390,500 if he makes the 25-man roster. Reliever Jonah Bayliss would make $392,500.
Teams have control over the salaries of their 0-to-3 players, so long as the contracts meet the major league minimum of $390,000.
