Source: Jacoby Ellsbury avoids arbitration with 1-year deal
|01.18.13 at 1:29 pm ET|
Ellsbury was paid $8,050,000 last year after becoming eligible for arbitration for the second time. It was a significant bump in salary from the 2.4 million he made in 2011, due to his breakout 2011 season. He is headed for free agency after this season.
Following his memorable 2011 season in which he finished as runner-up in American League MVP voting, Ellsbury suffered through an injury-plagued season in 2012, playing just 74 games. He hit .271/.313/.370 with four home runs and 26 RBIs.
