Arbitration Avoided: Cliff Pennington Agrees with Diamondbacks, two years for $5 million

Newly acquired infielder Cliff Pennington became the latest Diamondback to avoid arbitration, agreeing to a two-year, $5 million deal, says Buster Olney of ESPN.

As discussed earlier in the week, the two sides put forth numbers with about a million dollars between them. The two-year deal will end up averaging closer to Pennington's side, though I'm sure it will be closer to the Diamondbacks' side for the first year. The two year contract will finish out his arbitration years and take him to free agency.

Gerardo Parra is the last Diamondback player left on the block.
