Royals Avoid Arb With Brian Bannister

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Royals have agreed to terms with Brain Bannister on a one-year, $1.7MM contract.

Bannister can earn another $25K if he reaches 200 innings or makes the All-Star team.  The 27-year-old right-hander asked for $2MM when arbitration figures were due and the Royals countered with $1.45MM.  It seems they’ve found a middle ground.  Bannister went 9-16 last season with a 5.76 ERA.
