Diamondbacks Avoid Arb With Miguel Montero

The Diamondbacks and Miguel Montero have agreed to a one-year contract to avoid arbitration according to a team press release. Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports that the contract is worth $3.2MM. 

Our Arbitration Tracker shows that Montero filed for $3.4MM in arbitration while the team countered with $2.8MM, so they settled just above the midpoint. The 27-year-old backstop hit .266/.332/.438 with nine homers in 331 plate appearances last season. He missed two months of the summer after having right knee surgery.
