The Milwaukee Brewers and centerfielder Carlos Gomez avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal Tuesday. reported the agreement is worth "around $2 million."

Gomez, 26, who made $1.5 million last year, began the 2011 season as the No. 1 centerfielder but again underachieved offensively in the early weeks. Left-handed-hitting Nyjer Morgan, acquired at the end of spring training, began starting against all right-hander pitchers.
