Philadelphia avoids arbitration with Jerad Eickhoff
Jerad Eickhoff was limited to just three appearances last season due to injury, but the Phillies still believe he has the potential to be a solid option at the backend of the rotation.

The two avoid arbitration on Thursday, agreeing to a one-year deal worth $975,000.

The 28-year-old right-hander has a career 3.91 over four seasons in the Majors to go along with a 1.28 WHIP.

Eickhoff underwent surgery immediately following the season to address an ongoing carpal tunnel issue that first appeared back in 2017. He also dealt with a recurring lat injury that he initially encountered in a Grapefruit League contest in March. He rejoined Philadelphia in September and surrendered four runs over a combined 5 1/3 innings.

He's now believed to be fully recovered and will enter Spring Training with an eye on snagging a slot in the starting rotation.
