Diamondbacks agree to deals with Hudson, Cintron

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to one-year contracts with Gold Glove second baseman Orlando Hudson and shortstop Alex Cintron on Tuesday, bypassing salary arbitration.

Hudson, who got a $2.3 million deal, and Cintron, who agreed to a $1.6 million contract, were the last of five Arizona players who filed for arbitration to reach deals with the team.

Hudson was acquired from Toronto with pitcher Miguel Batista in a deal last month that sent infielders Troy Glaus and Sergio Santos to the Blue Jays.

Cintron hit .273 with eight home runs and 48 RBI for the Diamondbacks last season.
