ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Third baseman David Freese has avoided arbitration with the Los Angeles Angels, agreeing to a one-year contract for $6,425,000.

The deal Wednesday was the midpoint between the $7.6 million Freese had asked for and the $5.25 million the Angels had offered.

Freese batted .260 and made $5.05 million in his first season with the Angels, getting off to a weak start in his first AL season before finishing with 10 homers and 55 RBIs. He filled a long-standing hole at third base for the Angels, who finished with the majors’ best record and won the AL West title.

The Angels’ remaining players in arbitration are newly acquired outfielder Matt Joyce and right-handed starter Garrett Richards.
