WASHINGTON -- Right-handed reliever Tyler Clippard and the Washington Nationals have agreed on a one-year contract for $5,875,000, avoiding arbitration.

Clippard's deal Monday means all eight Nationals players who filed for arbitration wound up settling before a hearing.

Clippard earned $4 million last year and asked for a raise to $6.35 million, while the team offered $4.45 million. In addition to his salary, he can earn $300,000 in performance bonuses based on games finished: $50,000 for 30, $75,000 each for 40 and 50 and $100,000 for 60.

He was 6-3 with a 2.41 ERA and 73 strikeouts in 71 innings last year.
