Sam Fuld has avoided today’s arbitration deadline and agreed to a 1-year, $725,000 contract with the Rays (via Marc Topkin). Fuld had been projected to make $500,000 through arbitration.
Topkin is also reporting that Ryan Roberts and Matt Joyce have reached deals, but details on their contracts are not yet available.
[UPDATE] Topkin is reporting Joyce agreed to a 1-year, $2.45 million deal and Roberts will sign a 1-year, $2.95 million contract. Joyce was projected at $2.6 million and Roberts was expected to received $3.0 million through arbitration.
With Jeff Niemann agreeing to a deal earlier today, this means the Rays will not have any players go to arbitration this winter.
