Ondrusek signs two-year contract

The Reds announced Thursday night that they signed RHP Logan Ondrusek to a two-year contract that avoids arbitration. Terms were not immediately revealed. Teams and arbitration eligible players were scheduled to exchange figures on Friday.

“It feels good,” Ondrusek said. “They talked to my agent and there wasn’t a lot of disagreement. It all went really smooth as far as I was concerned. It was nice to be able to sit back and focus on what I need to do for this upcoming season and not be worrying or having to go through arbitration. It took away a lot of pressure.”

In 63 games last season, Ondrusek was 5-2, with a 3.46 ERA. In 54 2/3 innings, the 27-year-old gave up 51 hits and 23 walks while striking out 39.

Overall, Ondrusek stranded 38 of his 42 inherited runners, including a season high 17 straight from June 9-Aug. 8. But he struggled for much of the month of August and was optioned to Triple-A Louisville for 10 days when Dioner Navarro needed a roster spot as Devin Mesoraco served a two-game suspension.

Hey Mark, what time are the arbitration figures expected to be exchanged? Will those figures be released to public?

The deadline was 1pm to exchange figures. In the past, I’ve been able to get them. When I do, there will be a blog post and story on MLB.com/Reds.com.
