Carlos Villanueva avoids arbitration, signs 1-year deal
Posted on: 01/26/10
by: Patrick Ebert

The Milwaukee Brewers and right-handed pitcher Carlos Villanueva have avoided arbitration and agreed upon a one-year deal worth $950,000. Villanueva, 26, went 4-10 last year with a 5.34 ERA appearing in 64 games, six of which were starts.

Villanueva will be looking on to pick up where he left off after the 2009 season, as he was strong to close out the season. During September and October, he went 2-0 with a 3.18 ERA in 13 appearances. He also pitched better out of the bullpen, with a 4.84 ERA in his 58 appearances as compared to a 6.52 ERA over six starts, and with the offseason additions of Randy Wolf and Doug Davis, Villanueva's day as even a spot starter are likely behind him.

The 2009 season was Villanueva's fourth with the Brewers. From 2006 through 2008 he collectively went 14-14 with a 3.94 ERA.

Arbitration-eligible outfielder Corey Hart remains unsigned.
