MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to one-year contracts with closer John Axford and two other right-handers, avoiding arbitration.

Axford can earn an additional $100,000 in performance bonuses ($50,000 each for 60 and 63 games finished) and $300,000 in awards bonuses. He finished 54 games last season and 63 in 2011.
