D-backs’ Delgado gets $2.25 million deal, avoids arbitration

PHOENIX (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks avoided arbitration with Randall Delgado by agreeing to a $2.25 million, one-year contract with the right-handed reliever.

Often as an effective long-reliever, Delgado went 1-2 with a 3.59 ERA in 26 appearances in 2017 before right elbow inflammation in mid-July ended his season.

The deal announced Monday night indicates the Diamondbacks are optimistic about Delgado’s recovery. Delgado was acquired in the Justin Upton trade in 2013 and is 23-19 in 236 games with the Diamondbacks.

Arizona still has 12 arbitration-eligible players.
