A’s, George Kottaras Avoid Arbitration

TUESDAY: Kottaras will earn $1MM in 2013, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports (on Twitter).

MONDAY: The Athletics announced that they avoided arbitration with catcher George Kottaras. The Lapa/Leventhal client agreed to a one-year deal for the 2013 season.

Kottaras had a projected salary of $1.1MM following a season in which he hit nine home runs and posted a .211/.351/.415 batting line in 209 plate appearances. Oakland acquired Kottaras from the Brewers for Fautino De Los Santos in July.

The A's have three remaining arbitration eligible players, as MLBTR's Arbitration Tracker shows: Jerry Blevins, Brandon Moss and Seth Smith.
