Diamondbacks avoid arbitration with Matt Reynolds

USA TODAY Sports

The deal will keep the left-hander under contract with the team through 2014, and includes an option for 2015.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have avoided arbitration with left-handed pitcher Matt Reynolds on a one-year deal that includes a club option for 2015, according to a team announcement. A source has confirmed to MLB Daily Dish that Reynolds will earn $550K in 2014 and that the option is worth $600K, as Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic first reported.

Reynolds, 29, was stellar in his first season with Arizona, posting a 1.98 ERA, 7.6 K/9, and 1.6 BB/9 in 27.1 innings of work before straining his elbow late in June and undergoing Tommy John surgery at the end of September. The southpaw will miss the majority of the 2014 season, but the option allows the Diamondbacks to retain him for 2015 if his rehab is deemed successful.

After spending three seasons with the Rockies, Reynolds was dealt to Arizona last November in exchange for infielder Ryan Wheeler. In 195 appearances over four seasons with the Rockies (2010-2012) and Diamondbacks (2013), he has compiled a career 5-5 record with a 3.58 ERA in 153.1 innings of work.
