Milwaukee Brewers, Shaun Marcum Avoid Arbitration, Agree to One-Year, $7.725 Million deal

The Milwaukee Brewers have reportedly agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Shaun Marcum on a one-year deal worth approximately $7.725 Million, sources say, avoiding arbitration by near hours of their scheduled hearing in St. Petersburg, Florida.

According to numerous reports, Marcum had applied for a $8.7 Million salary for the upcoming season, and the Brewers submitted a price of $6.75 Million last month.  Consequently, Marcum’s 2012 salary will be the midpoint of both figures.

Last season, Marcum went 13-7 with a 3.54 ERA but was arguably the best road pitcher in the big leagues, holding true to a 2.21 ERA and .202 BAA while going 8-3.

Only newly acquired reliever Jose Veras remains in arbitration with the Brewers.
