The Arizona Diamondbacks avoided arbitration with reliever Brad Ziegler by agreeing to a two-year, $9.5 million contract extension on Friday, HardballTalk.com reported.
In addition, the extension will buy out Ziegler's first year of free agency.
Ziegler went 8-1 with a 2.22 earned run average this past season.
