 MIAMI (AP) -Florida Marlins closer Kevin Gregg agreed to a $2.5 million contract Friday, and two teammates also accepted one-year deals to avoid arbitration.
Right-hander Sergio Mitre agreed to a $1.2 million contract, and utilityman Alfredo Amezaga accepted a $945,000 deal. As a result, the Marlins will have no players in arbitration.
Gregg received a raise from $575,000 last year, when he led the Marlins with 32 saves in 36 opportunities in his first season as a closer. He made a career-high 74 appearances and had a 3.54 ERA.
Mitre also received a big raise after making the major league minimum $380,000 last year, when he went 5-8 in a career-high 27 starts with a 4.65 ERA. Mitre will receive an additional $25,000 if he pitches 180 innings, something he has never done.
Amezaga played in 133 games last season, appearing at seven positions and hitting .263 with 13 stolen bases. His contract calls for a $15,000 bonus for 475 plate appearances, and another $15,000 for 525.
