The Phillies have avoided salary arbitration with righthander Kyle Kendrick as the two sides agreed to a one-year deal worth $2.45 milion. The deal also includes awards bonuses.

Tuesday marked the day the two sides were scheduled to exchange salary figures, but with both Kendrick and outfielder Ben Francisco signed, the Phillies avoided going to an arbitration hearing.

Kendrick, 26, went 11-10 with a 4.73 ERA and established career highs in innings pitched (180 2/3), strikeouts (84) and appearances (33, including 31 starts).

You can read more about Kendrick's signing in Wednesday's Inquirer.
