BY foxsports • January 15, 2016

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to one-year contracts with right-hander Shelby Miller, left-hander Patrick Corbin and four other players to avoid arbitration.

All-Star A.J. Pollock exchanged arbitration figures with the Diamondbacks on Friday. He asked for $3.9 million and the team offered $3.65 million.

Catcher Welington Castillo ($3.7 million) and right-handers Daniel Hudson ($2.7 million), Rubby De La Rosa ($2.35 million) and Randall Delgado ($1,275,000) also agreed to deals.

An All-Star last season, Miller arrived in Arizona in an offseason trade that sent 2015 No. 1 overall draft pick Dansby Swanson and outfielder Ender Inciarte to Atlanta. He will make $4.35 million.

Corbin will make $2,525,000 after going 6-5 with a 3.60 ERA in 16 starts after missing the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery.

De La Rosa went 14-9 with a 4.67 ERA in 32 starts in 2015. Delgado was 8-4 with a 3.25 ERA in 64 appearances.

Hudson went 4-3 with four saves and a 3.86 ERA in his first season since having consecutive Tommy John surgeries.

Castillo hit .237 with 19 homers and 57 RBIs in 110 games.

Pollock is the team's only unsigned player and a mult-year contract extension is a possibility.
