PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks have avoided arbitration with reliever David Hernandez, agreeing to a $2 million, one-year contract.

The hard-throwing right-hander missed all of last season after Tommy John surgery.

Because the contract is not guaranteed, Hernandez could be released before opening day for roughly one-quarter or one-sixth of his salary in termination pay, depending on the timing.

Arizona has four remaining arbitration-eligible players: outfielder Mark Trumbo, infielder Cliff Pennington, reliever Addison Reed and right-handed starter Jeremy Hellickson.
