Brewers reach 1-yr deals with 3 arbitration-eligible players
MILWAUKEE (AP) The Brewers and right-hander Wily Peralta reached agreement on a $2.8 million, one-year contract Friday to avoid arbitration, a big raise from his $525,000 salary last season.
Also reaching terms on one-year agreements Friday with Milwaukee were shortstop Jean Segura on a $2.6 million deal and left-hander Will Smith for $1,475,000 million. Segura made $534,000 last season and Smith $512,500.
After two straight seasons making 32 starts, Peralta went 5-10 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 starts while dealing with a nagging oblique strain.
Smith went a career-best 7-2 with a 2.70 ERA in 76 appearances over 63 1-3 innings last year.
Segura has played 146, 146 and 142 games the past three seasons, batting .257 with six home runs, 16 doubles, five triples and 50 RBIs in 2015.
