Arbitration: Phillies make a deal with Kyle Kendrick

Kyle Kendrick will not be going to an arbitration meeting with the Philadelphia Phillies. Joel Sherman (@JoelSherman1) tweets that the Phils have reached an agreement with their starter.

Kendrick, who is two seasons away from free agency, signed a one-year pact with Philadelphia for $7.675 million. This is a significant increase from his $4.5 million salary from 2013.

Kendrick, who started 30 games for the Phillies, pitched to a 10-13 record with a 4.70 ERA. He pitched a career-high 182 innings, and had two complete games with one shutout.
