Diamondbacks, Roberts Avoid Arbitration

The Diamondbacks and Ryan Roberts avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year, $2.0125MM deal, the Beverly Hills Sports Council tweets. BHSC represents Roberts, a super two player who was arbitration eligible for the first time this offseason.

As MLBTR's Arbitration Tracker shows, Roberts had filed for $2.275MM and the Diamondbacks had offered $1.65MM for a midpoint just shy of $2MM. Craig Breslow is Arizona's lone unsigned arbitration eligible player now that the Diamondbacks have agreed to terms with Roberts and Miguel Montero.

This was almost a sure thing. Of all the arbitration players the Dbacks had, it seems like the figures were more or less just provided to figure out the average. No reason to sign him long-term either unless he produces well again. Tatman in 2011 was catching lightning in a bottle.
