That's a bargain unless he totally bombs. Buys out 1 arb year and 3 free agent years for $15.4 million a year.

I think it is a good deal for Keller as well, especially the way pitchers get injured. I think he already agreed to $5m for this year. Arbitration would get him maybe $12m next year. $20m for each of the next 3 years would give a total of $77m. Where is is good for the Pirates is the next time he needs to renegotiate is at age 32. Keller sacrificed some years on his contract.
