Durbin, Phillies avoid arbitration

Durbin, Phillies avoid arbitration

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies successfully avoided salary arbitration with Chad Durbin on Monday, when they agreed to a one-year, $2.125 million contract, a source said. If the two sides had not agreed, they would have exchanged salary arbitration figures on Tuesday.

Durbin went 2-2 with a 4.39 ERA in 59 appearances last season. He went 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA in 71 appearances in 2008.

The Phillies have three other players eligible for arbitration: center fielder Shane Victorino, right-hander Joe Blanton and catcher Carlos Ruiz. It is unknown where the club stands in negotiations with the three.
