Found October 15, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Diamondbacks announced that they have avoided arbitration with left-hander Matt Reynolds by agreeing to a one-year contract with a club option for the 2015 season. Reynolds 29 was enjoying an outstanding season in his first year with the Snakes before going down with a left elbow strain. That injury resulted in the worst possible outcome for team and player as Reynolds ultimately underwent Tommy John surgery on Sept. 24. In 27 1/3 innings for the D-Backs this season Reynolds had a pristing 1.98 ERA with 7.6 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9. By locking him up for 2014 and securing a club option for 2015 the Diamondbacks gain some cost certainty over an asset who is controlled through the 2016 season.
