Brewers, Marcum Avoid Arbitration

The Brewers announced that they avoided arbitration with Shaun Marcum, agreeing to a one-year deal for 2012. The sides settled at the midpoint of $7.725MM, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports. Turner Gary Sports represents the right-hander.

Marcum had asked for $8.7MM, while the Brewers had countered with $6.75MM, as MLBTR's Arbitration Tracker shows. Marcum is set to hit free agency after the 2012 season along with a group of starters that currently seems deep. Right-handed reliever Jose Veras is Milwaukee's lone unsigned arbitration eligible player.

Now that Marcum has agreed to terms, Matt Garza has settled with the Cubs and Anibal Sanchez has had his hearing, discussions between the Orioles and Jeremy Guthrie are set to pick up. The sides have a hearing scheduled Monday, but these new settlements figure to re-shape discussions to an extent.
