Pirates closer Jason Grilli is looking for a contract extension.

Grill is under contract for one more season with the Pirates. He will make $4.25 million in 2014, which is a bargain price for the club considering some of the game's top closers make $10 million per year or more. Grilli posted 33 saves last season to go with a 2.70 ERA. He struck out 13.3 batters per nine innings.

“I'd like to add years, of course,” Grilli said Saturday at PirateFest. “Whether it's wearing the Pirates jersey (beyond 2014) or another one, that's entirely up to the ballclub. I know after this year I'm a free agent again. I have every incentive to do well again for my team and for myself.”

Teams are often hesitant to give relievers multiyear contracts, particularly 37-year-old pitchers. Grilli did not indicate he was expecting an extension offer this offseason.

“(Former Cincinnati Reds and Detroit Tigers manager) Sparky Anderson said it the best. He said if you want the most out of a guy, you give him a one-year deal,” Grilli said.

Grilli said his right elbow and forearm are healthy after he missed six weeks with a strained flexor tendon last season. Grilli lost some velocity when he returned.
