What year does he actually become a FA?

I am looking on several website and I see conflicting information. Some say he is an UFA in 2015 while others say 2017. For example Baseball Reference says he is will have arbitration in 2014 - 2016 then UFA in 2017.

He has two more years (2013, 2014) under his draft contract, both club options that the Pirates will take (under a million). After 2014, he will have 4.085 days of major league service. I believe he would go to arbitration for 2015 and 2016, therefore not becoming a free agent until 2017.

So I guess it's safe to assume that two more 30 HR seasons will make his arbitration a years unaffordable.

I'm pretty sure arbitration trumps his rookie contract so he will get three years of arbitration starting in 2014 through 2016. Either way, he's a Pirate until after 2016, when he will turn 30.

This is correct. Expect a trade pre-2016, 2016 deadline, or at least a qualifying offer. My hope is the last because that means he's earned a qualifying offer and we're in contention in 2016 so we aren't trading him.
