The Diamondbacks did it again, once more completing their set of arbitration-eligible players by agreeing to a one-year deal with Gerardo Parra.
Jack Magruder tweeted the amount which is slightly towards the team estimate. When the two sides submitted their pre-arbitration figures last month, Parra was asking for $2.7 million, while the team offered $2.1 million, so this is something near the middle of those two figures. The Diamondbacks extended their streak of arbitration-free seasons, and still haven't gone to a hearing since 2001 - as noted, only four franchises have a longer ongoing run of equitably agreeing to terms with all their players. Which is probably a good thing, as hearings can be a fractious process, the team basically dissing the man and his achievements.
