The Oakland Athletics and outfielder Josh Reddick avoided arbitration with an agreement on a one-year, $2.7 million deal, according to reports on Saturday.
Reddick was seeking $3.25 million in his first year of arbitration eligibility and the Athletics countered with $2 million.
With Reddick's contract situation settled, the Athletics avoided an arbitration hearing for the ninth year in a row.
The 26-year-old Reddick batted .226 with 12 home runs and 56 RBIs in 114 games last season while battling a wrist injury that landed him on the disabled list twice. The year before, Reddick belted 32 homers and drove in 85 runs while hitting .242 for Oakland.
