Logan Ondrusek Rumors

NL Notes: Phillies, Reds, Rockies, Figgins

As players, coaches, and front office personnel begin to arrive in Florida and Arizona for Spring Training 2013, let's take a look at the news and notes from the National League:


Reds, Logan Ondrusek Agree To Deal

The Reds and Logan Ondrusek have agreed to terms on a two-year deal to avoid arbitration, a source tells Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter).  The right-handed reliever is a client of Rich Thompson.

Ondrusek, 28 in February, posted a 3.46 ERA with 6.4 K/9 and 5.1 BB/9 in 63 games last season.  This was the reliever's first time entering the arbitration process and it looks like he won't encounter it again until after the 2014 season.  Ondrusek, who is a Super Two, is eligible for free agency after the 2016 campaign.

The Reds have several arbitration cases left, including Mat Latos.  Earlier this week, Matt Swartz examined Latos' situation.  Swartz's projections had Ondrusek pegged at $900K this winter.
