PHILADELPHIA -- Right-hander Geoff Geary agreed Tuesday to a one-year contract worth $837,500 with the Philadelphia Phillies, avoiding arbitration.

Geary was 7-1 with a 2.96 ERA and one save in 81 games last season. He allowed 103 hits, struck out 60 and walked 20 in 91 1-3 innings. In four seasons, Geary is 10-2 with a 3.78 ERA in 159 appearances -- all in relief.
