Reds and Volquez Agree on 2011 Contract

Reds and RHP Edinson Volquez avoided arbitration Sunday by agreeing to a one-year contract. It’s believed the deal is for $1.6 million. The Reds wanted to lock up Volquez with a long-term deal like they have with multiple other players this offseason, but the right-hander preferred to take a one-year deal and build up his value. Volquez, who is under team control through 2013, posted a 4.31 ERA and 65/37 K/BB ratio over 62 2/3 innings last year. (Rotoworld)
