The Dodgers and pitcher Vidal Nuno have avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year, $1.125 million contract for the 2017 season, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Nuno, 29, was entering his first of three years of arbitration eligibility. The Dodgers acquired the lefty from the Mariners in November in exchange for catcher Carlos Ruiz.

This past season, with the Mariners, Nuno posted a 3.53 ERA with a 51/11 K/BB ratio in 58 2/3 innings, coming almost exclusively in relief. Nuno has made 42 career major league starts so he also provides some starting rotation depth for the Dodgers.
