According to MLB.com’s Mark Bowman, the Braves avoided arbitration with outfielder Jeff Francoeur by signing him at $3.375MM for ’09.  He can earn another $25K in incentives.  The two parties settled at the midpoint of their submissions, though most expected Francoeur to lose his case after a dismal ’08.  The deal marks the conclusion of Atlanta’s arbitration cases for ’09.
