Mike Dunn avoids arbitration with the Marlins

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that reliever Mike Dunn has avoided arbitration with the Marlins. The two sides agreed on a two-year, $5.8 million deal, which buys out his two remaining years of arbitration eligibility. Dunn will earn $2.35 million in 2015 and $3.45 million in 2016.

Dunn had filed for $2.6 million and the Marlins countered with $2.355 million. The average annual value of $2.9 million is slightly more than Dunn had asked for and about $500,000 above the midpoint of the two figures.

Dunn, 29, finished with a 3.16 ERA and a 67/22 K/BB ratio over 57 innings last season for the Marlins. The lefty has significantly reduced his walk rate in recent years while continuing to rank in the top-30 in strikeout rate among relief pitchers.
