BoSox, Donnelly avoid arbitration with one-year deal
BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox avoided arbitration with right-hander Brendan Donnelly on Tuesday by agreeing to a one-year, $1.4 million contract.
The deal also calls for bonuses of $25,000 each if finishes 25 games or 30 games.
Donnelly, who made $950,000 last season, sought $1.65 million and the Red Sox offered $1.15 million. The 35-year-old reliever was acquired last month from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for rookie left-hander Phil Seibel.
