The San Francisco Giants avoided arbitration with pitcher Jose Mijares when he agreed to a one-year, $1.8 million deal.
Miljares, 28, pitched for Kansas City and the Giants last season, posting a 3-2 record with a 2.56 ERA in 56 innings as a reliever. He also worked 2 2/3 innings in the postseason for San Francisco.
The left-hander is expected to pitch in middle relief for the Giants this season.
