Three Reds avoid arbitration

Lots of signings around baseball Friday ahead of the 1 p.m. ET deadline for clubs and arbitration-eligible players to exchange salary figures.

The Reds have three players who agreed to terms on contracts to avoid arbitration.

Reliever Sam LeCure: Two-year contract worth $3.05 million
Starting pitcher Mike Leake: One-year contract worth $5.925 million
Reliever Alfredo Simon: One-year contract worth $1.25 million (according to Rosenthal)

Leake’s deal was announced on Twitter by his agency, the Beverly Hills Sports Council, but the Reds have yet to verify.

Cincinnati still has two cases pending in RHP Homer Bailey and LHP Aroldis Chapman.
