Reds, Mike Leake Avoid Arbtration

The Reds and Mike Leake have avoided arbitration, according to the Beverly Hills Sports Council (via Twitter).  He'll get $5.925MM plus incentives, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (Twitter links).

Leake, a former No. 8 overall draft pick, was in his second year of arbitration eligibility. The Arizona State product is controllable through the 2015 season and should join a rotation that will also include Homer Bailey, Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos and Tony Cingrani in 2014. The Reds still have unsettled arb cases with Bailey and closer Aroldis Chapman, as MLBTR's Arb Tracker shows.

MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz nailed his projection on Leake, pegging him for a $5.9MM salary this offseason.
