CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Reds have agreed to a one-year deal, 3.06 million deal with right-hander Mike Leake, avoiding salary arbitration with their fifth starter. The deal on Wednesday leaves three Reds still facing arbitration: starters Mat Latos and Homer Bailey and outfielder Shin-Soo Choo. Leake made 507,500 last season, when he went 8-9 with a 4.58 earned run average in 30 starts, a career high. He asked for 3.5 million in arbitration, and the club offered 2,650,000. He will compete with left-hander Aroldis Chapman for a spot in the rotation. He will make an additional 25,000 if he reaches 180 innings pitched. The Reds have their three most expensive arbitration cases still pending. Choo is seeking 8 million, Bailey 5.8 million and Latos 4.7 million. The Reds have settled with outfielder Chris Heisey and reliever Alfredo Simon.
