MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Outfielder Delmon Young and the Minnesota Twins avoided salary arbitration by agreeing Wednesday to a one-year contract worth $5,375,000.

The deal was just below the midpoint of the $6.25 million Young had asked for and the $4.65 million the Twins had offered when players and teams exchanged proposed arbitration figures last month.

Young hit .298 last year with 46 doubles, 21 homers and 112 RBIs, and he made $2.65 million.

Three players remain in arbitration — Toronto outfielder Jose Bautista, Milwaukee second baseman Rickie Weeks and Houston outfielder Hunter Pence — with hearings scheduled through Friday.

Players and owners have split the two cases already decided, with Pittsburgh pitcher Ross Ohlendorf winning and Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver losing.
