PHOENIX (AP) - A person with knowledge of the situation says the Arizona Diamondbacks and shortstop Chris Pennington have avoided an arbitration hearing by reaching a two-year, $5 million contract agreement.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because there has been no official announcement.
In arbitration filings, Pennington had sought $2.8 million for one year and Arizona had offered $1.8 million.
The deal first was reported by ESPN.
The Diamondbacks sent center fielder Chris Young to Oakland for Pennington last October.
The agreement leaves only outfielder Gerardo Parra in arbitration with the Diamondbacks.
