MLB Free Agency 2012: Kyle Kendrick Re-Signs With Philadelphia Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies avoided arbitration with pitcher Kyle Kendrick and signed him to a one-year contract worth $3.585 million, Fox Sports' Jon Morosi reported on Friday.

Kendrick, 27, was 8-6 last season with a 3.22 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 114.2 innings pitched. The versatile righty proved he could be effective in either a relief or starting role, beginning the year in the bullpen but also providing 15 starts.

During five Major League seasons, all with the Phillies, Kendrick has accumulated a 43-30 record with a 4.41 ERA and 275 strikeouts in 598.1 innings pitched. He has started 98 times in 127 appearances. He went 10-4 as a rookie in 2007.
