MIAMI (AP) -Matt Treanor and the Florida Marlins avoided arbitration, agreeing to a $705,000, one-year contract on Thursday.
The catcher had his best season last year, batting .269 with four homers and 19 RBIs in 55 games. This year will be his fifth with the Marlins.
Treanor is expected to share playing time with prospect Mike Rabelo, acquired from Detroit in the deal that sent slugger Miguel Cabrera and left-hander Dontrelle Willis to the Tigers.
Treanor can earn an additional $45,000 in performance bonuses: $15,000 each for making 55, 70 and 80 starts.
The Marlins have three other players who filed for arbitration: outfielder Alfredo Amezaga, and right-handers Kevin Gregg and Sergio Mitre.
