Motte, Cardinals Avoid Arbitration

The Cardinals avoided arbitration with Jason Motte, agreeing to a one-year deal, Jon Heyman of tweets. Motte, an ACES client, will earn a base salary of $1.95MM in 2012 and could earn $75K more in incentives.

As MLBTR's Arbitration Tracker shows, that's the midpoint between the Cardinals' $1.5MM submission and Motte's request of $2.4MM. The Cardinals have now signed all of their arbitration eligible players.

    I’d take Motte at 2mil over Bailey at 4mil…
