Arredondo gets $2 million in 2-year deal with Reds

Reliever Jose Arredondo will receive $2 million under his

two-year contract with the Cincinnati Reds.

The deal, announced by the Reds last week, calls for the

right-hander to receive salaries of $800,000 this year and $1.2

million in 2013.

Arredondo made $480,000 last season, when he went 4-4 with a

3.23 ERA in 53 appearances around two stints on the disabled


Cincinnati hopes Arredondo can get back to pitching the way he

did before surgery. Arredondo went 10-2 with a 1.62 ERA in 52

relief appearances for the Angels in 2008.
