Leake avoids arbitration
Reds pitcher Mike Leake avoided arbitration with the club by agreeing to a one-year deal at $9.775 million, a source told MLB.com on Friday.
Leake earned $5.9 million last season. This winter was his third and final time of being eligible for arbitration. He can become a free agent after the season.
The Reds have not announced a signing yet.
That leaves Chapman, Mesoraco and Frazier still eligible for arbitration.
UPDATE at 1:35 p.m.: The Reds announced they have agreed to terms with Leake and Cozart.
