Philadelphia Phillies have avoided arbitration and singed Hunter Pence to a one-year, $10.4 million contract.
The Right fielder had originally asked for $11.8 million while the Phillies had offered $9 million. The contract includes additional award bonuses where Pence can earn $50,000 for All-Star election or selection, $50,000 each for Gold Glove, Silver Slugger and league championship series MVP, and $100,000 apiece for NL MVP and World Series MVP.
The two-time All-Star joined the club from the Astros on July 29th and has a .292 average, 114 homers and 412 RBIs in five seasons.
