Hope for the best for Inge. Loved him as a Tiger. He had a tremendous work ethic and one of the best gloves I’ve ever seen.

Danny Knobler of CBS Sports has the scoop:

Brandon Inge is close to signing with the Pirates, according to sources.

Inge is expected to sign a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training.

The 35-year-old infielder batted just .218/.275/.383 across 331 plate appearances last season between the Tigers and Athletics. But he does boast some pop, which is something that has been missing from the Pirates’ bench over the past few summers.

Inge has averaged 17 home runs for every 162 games over the course of his 12-year MLB career.

UPDATE, 9:43 PM: The deal has been agreed upon, according to MLB.com’s Tom Singer.
