Okajima, Red Sox Avoid Arbitration

The Red Sox and reliever Hideki Okajima have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, reports Ian Browne of MLB.com (via Twitter).  Okajima will make $2.75MM and will receive bonuses of $50K each for 50, 55, 60, 65, and 70 appearances, according to Browne in a follow-up tweet.  The deal marks a significant raise for the lefty as he earned a base salary of $1.25MM last season.

In 2009, Okajima posted a 3.39 ERA with 7.8 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 in 68 games.  The 34-year-old is entering his fourth major league season and will be under the BoSox contractual control until 2012.
