The Cincinnati Reds and right-handed pitcher Jose Arredondo have agreed to terms on a two-year contract through 2013, thus avoiding arbitration. The club announced the deal via Twitter. Salary numbers were not released. By coming to an agreement, the two sides successfully avoided salary arbitration.

By striking a deal with Arredondo, the Reds now don't have any other arbitration eligible players remaining. The Reds have been one of the most active teams this offseason, and can now concentrate on locking up second baseman Brandon Phillips long-term.
