The Reds and Felipe Lopez have agreed to terms on a $2.7 million contract for this season, avoiding an arbitration hearing that was scheduled for next Wednesday. Lopez had asked for $3 million in his arbitration filing and the Reds had offered $2.15 million.
Getting the All-Star shortstop in the fold leaves only Adam Dunn's case on the docket. His hearing is set for Feb. 17, and there is a $1.85 million gap between the two sides' filing figures. Per Marc's blog.
