MLB: Spring Training-Tampa Bay Rays at Toronto Blue JaysThe Rays and Jeff Niemann have avoided arbitration and agreed to a 1-year, $3 million deal (via Jon Heyman). The two sides had until 1pm this afternoon to reach an agreement or the two sides would have gone to an arbitrator to determine Niemann’s 2013 salary.

Niemann was projected to receive $3.1 million in arbitration.

The Rays still have three players (Ryan Roberts, Matt Joyce, Sam Fuld) who are eligible for arbitration and are still facing this afternoon’s deadline.
