Brewers agree to 1-year deal with RHP Villanueva

BY foxsports • January 27, 2010

The Milwaukee Brewers and right-hander Carlos Villanueva have agreed to a one-year, $950,000 contract, avoiding salary arbitration.

Villanueva was 4-10 with a 5.34 ERA in 64 appearances, including six starts, last season.

After Tuesday's deal with Villanueva, outfielder Corey Hart is the final Brewers player who remains eligible for arbitration. Brewers general manager Doug Melvin has never had a case reach an arbitration hearing since taking over in Milwaukee in 2002.
