Brewers' Corey Knebel: Avoids arbitration with Brewers

Knebel agreed to a one-year, $3.65 million deal with the Brewers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

This was his first offseason as an arbitration-eligible player. He enters his age-26 season as one of the most dominant, trustworthy closers in the game. Knebel posted a 1.78 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 126 strikeouts in 76 innings last season and was successful on 39 of 45 save chances.
