PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks and right-handed reliever Josh Collmenter have avoided arbitration by agreeing on a $2,425,000, two-year contract.
Collmenter was 5-5 with a 3.13 ERA in 49 games last season. He led all NL relievers with 92 innings pitched and a club-record nine relief appearances of at least three innings. His 29 extra innings were the most by a major leaguer since Tug McGraw had 29 in 1972.
The deal Wednesday gives Collmenter a $925,000 salary this year and $1.4 million in 2015. He also gets a $100,000 signing bonus.
There is a club option for 2016 at $1,825,000, and the contract includes a $2 million mutual option for 2017. If Collmenter exercises the 2017 option and the team declines, he gets a $150,000 buyout. If the pitcher turns down that option, the team can pick it up for $2.25 million.
If all the options are exercised, Collmenter's deal could be worth up to $6.5 million over four years.
