A's Avoid Arbitration With Chris Resop

The A's have avoided arbitration with Chris Resop by agreeing to a one-year, $1.35MM deal, according to MLBTR's Ben Nicholson-Smith (on Twitter).  The right-hander is represented by Jet Sports Management.

The $1.35MM is pretty much in line with his projected figure of $1.3MM from Matt Swartz.  This was Resop's second time being arbitration-eligible and he'll see a significant increase over his $850K salary last year.

Oakland acquired Resop from the Pirates in exchange for Zach Thornton earlier this offseason.  The 30-year-old pitched to a 3.91 ERA with 5.6 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 73 2/3 innings for the Pirates in 2012.  Resop will be eligible for free agency after the 2014 season.
