Pirates general manager Neal Huntington today said the team will tender contracts to all five of its arbitration-eligible players.

Freddy Sanchez, Adam LaRoche, Xavier Nady and John Grabow each are in their second year of arbitration eligibility. Jose Bautista is eligible for the first time.

Any eligible player who is not tendered by midnight tomorrow becomes a free agent.

Last season, the Pirates tendered eight players and wound up negotiating one-year contracts with each of them before the arbitration hearings began.
