DENVER -- Outfielder Drew Stubbs avoided arbitration by agreeing Wednesday with the Colorado Rockies on a one-year, non-guaranteed contract for $5,825,000.

Stubbs made $4.1 million last year, his first season in Colorado. He hit a career-best .289 with 15 homers and 43 RBIs in 132 games for the Rockies.

In six seasons with the Cleveland, Cincinnati and Rockies, Stubbs has a .246 batting average with 84 home runs.

Colorado's other played who filed for arbitration Tuesday are right-handers Jhoulys Chacin, Tyler Chatwood, Jordan Lyles and Adam Ottavino; left-hander Rex Brothers; and catchers Mike McKenry and Adam Ottavino. Players who don't settle by Friday will swap proposed arbitration salaries with the Rockies.
