PBR - The Phillies and Cole Hamels agreed on a one-year deal worth $15 million and avoided arbitration.

Hamels went 14-9 last season with a 2.79 ERA in 32 games last season.

The one-year deal allows Hamels and the club the luxury of discussing a long-term contract. Hamels is eligible for free agency following the 2012 season.

The left-hander made $9.5 million last season in the final year of a three-year contract.

The club also signed Wilson Valdez for $930,000.

Tuesday was the final day for players to sign before arbitration numbers are exchanged.
