Padres, Dustin Moseley Avoid Arbitration

8:12pm: Moseley will earn $2.0125MM, tweets Corey Brock of MLB.com. The righty asked for $2.55MM, while the club originally offered $1.5MM, as MLBTR's Arbitration Tracker shows.

6:09pm: The Padres and right-hander Dustin Moseley have avoided arbitration by agreeing to terms on a one-year contract, the team announced.

Moseley, 30, spent time with the Angels and Yankees before joining the Friars in 2011. The swing man was used exclusively as a starter last season, posting a career-best 3.30 ERA over 120 innings before being lost to season-ending surgery on his non-throwing shoulder in August.

The Yankees non-tendered Moseley after the 2010 campaign, facilitating his move to San Diego, and it was rumored he may get the same treatment from the Padres, but he'll once again call PETCO Park his home ballpark in 2012.

All of the Padres' arbitration eligible players are now under contract for 2012.
