To no surprise, Ben Revere and the Phillies avoided arbitration on Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $1.95 million deal.
Revere became the fourth and final arbitration-eligible Phillie to ink a one-year deal, joining Kyle Kendrick, John Mayberry Jr. and Antonio Bastardo.
Revere made $515,000 in 2013 and asked for a 2014 salary of $2.425 million, while the team offered $1.4 million.
So Revere’s midpoint was just over $1.9 million. Turns out, both parties landed right around that.
And with that, the arbitration talks thankfully come to an end.
