Diamondbacks, Gerardo Parra avoid arbitration

Nick Piecoro reports that the Diamondbacks and Gerardo Parra have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.85 million contract.

Parra requested $5.2 million and was offered $4.3 million from the Diamondbacks when arbitration figures were exchanged last month, so the two sides settled for a little above the midpoint. Let’s call this a win for Parra. Not that anyone cares except for hard core arbitration gamblers, but since football is now over for the year they gotta have something.
