    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Jan 23, 2013
    Pennington filed for $2.8 million in arbitration, and the D-backs offered $1.8 million. Pennington, 28, played in 125 games last season for the A's. The Arizona Diamondbacks and shortstop Cliff Pennington have avoided an arbitration hearing by reaching a two-year, $5 million contract agreement, a person with knowledge of the situation said Wednesday. Pennington's agreement leaves Arizona with just one remaining arbitration-eligible player, outfielder Gerardo Parra. ESPN's Buster Olney first reported the agreement, and a source confirmed the two-year, $5 million contract to MLB.com last week. The agreement leaves only outfielder Gerardo Parra in arbitration with the Diamondbacks. Parra is among a glut of outfielders on the Arizona roster, with speculation centering on possible trades involving either left fielder Jason Kubel or right fielder Justin Upton, who reportedly has vetoed a deal to Seattle.
