Jose Arredondo to receive $2 million

CINCINNATI -- Reliever Jose Arredondo will receive $2 million under his two-year contract with the Cincinnati Reds.

The deal, announced by the Reds last week, calls for the right-hander to receive salaries of $800,000 this year and $1.2 million in 2013.

Arredondo made $480,000 last season, when he went 4-4 with a 3.23 ERA in 53 appearances around two stints on the disabled list.

Cincinnati hopes Arredondo can get back to pitching the way he did before surgery. Arredondo went 10-2 with a 1.62 ERA in 52 relief appearances for the Angels in 2008.
