Vargas and Brewers agree at $2.5 million

Associated Press

MILWAUKEE -- Right-hander Claudio Vargas and the Milwaukee Brewers agreed Monday to a $2.5 million, one-year contract, halfway between the $2.85 he had asked for and the $2.15 million the team had offered.

Vargas, obtained by Milwaukee as part of a six-player deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks in November, was 12-10 with a 4.83 ERA for Arizona last season.

Milwaukee has two players remaining in arbitration: utility infielder/outfielder Bill Hall and catcher Johnny Estrada.
