Brewers, Shaun Marcum avoid arbitration

4 Comments

The Brewers and starter Shaun Marcum avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract. The settlement was for $7.725 million, which was at the exact midpoint between their competing offers.

Marcum’s 2011 was good overall — he was 13-7 with a 3.54 ERA in 200.2 innings — but he ran out of gas at the end of the season.
