Diamondbacks avoid arbitration, reach deals with Ray, Chafin

The Arizona Diamondbacks avoided arbitration by reaching one-year deals with left-hander Robbie Ray and southpaw reliever Andrew Chafin, the team announced on Friday.

According to reports, Ray receives $6.05 million for next season and Chafin signed a deal worth $1.945 million.

Ray, 27, went 6-2 in 24 starts last season with a 3.93 ERA and 165 strikeouts over 123 2/3 innings pitched.

Ray made $3.95 million last season, his fourth with the Diamondbacks.

He was a National League All-Star in 2017 when he went 15-5 with a 2.89 ERA in 28 starts.

Chafin, 28, appeared in 77 games for the Diamondbacks last season, posting a 3.10 ERA over 49 1/3 innings and striking out 53 batters. He had a 1-6 record.

His salary represents an $800,000 raise over 2018.

Arizona also reached a one-year deal with catcher John Ryan Murphy on Thursday.
