Brewers Marcum, Brewers avoid arbitration

Quote:
e Brewers and right-hander Shaun Marcum avoided arbitration late Wednesday by agreeing to a one-year, $3.95 million contract for 2011.

The settlement fell just below the midpoint of figures proposed by the sides last month, but includes performance bonuses to push it past $4 million.

Marcum, acquired from the Blue Jays in early December, filed for $5 million as a second-time arbitration-eligible player. The Brewers offered $3 million.The 29-year-old Marcum cost the Brewers their top offensive prospect, Brett Lawrie, and will be part of a remade starting rotation that includes three 2010 Opening Day starters with Marcum, Zack Greinke and Yovani Gallardo. After missing all of 2009 while rehabbing from Tommy John elbow surgery, Marcum bounced back to go 13-8 with a 3.64 ERA in 31 starts and 195 1/3 innings in 2010, impressive numbers in the tough American League East. He earned $850,000 last season.

Second baseman Rickie Weeks is now the Brewers' lone arbitration-eligible player who is unsigned. Weeks has a hearing scheduled for Feb. 17.
