Jacoby Ellsbury: Avoids Arbitration With Boston

Update: Ellsbury and the Red Sox avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $9 million contract Friday, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

Recommendation: Ellsbury appeared in just 74 games last season due to injuries, but he is just two seasons removed from finishing second in the AL MVP race. Now healthy again, expect Ellsbury to be a multi-category contributor again in 2013.
