The San Francisco Giants avoided arbitration with right-handed pitcher Sergio Romo by agreeing to a two-year contract on Wednesday, the team announced. 

Financial terms were not disclosed. Romo, who will begin next season as the team's closer, had requested $4.5 million and was offered $2.675 million by the Giants when arbitration figures were exchanged last month.

The new two-year deal buys out Romo's two arbitration years. Romo appeared in 69 games last season, going 4-2 with 14 saves and 23 holds. He had a 1.79 ERA and struck out 63 batters in 55.1 innings pitched.
