The Washington Nationals and catcher Wilson Ramos have avoided salary arbitration and agreed to a deal, the team announced Wednesday.

ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the contract is for one-year and worth $5.35 million.

Ramos, 28, batted .229 with 15 home runs and 68 RBIs for the Nationals in 2015, and was also a Gold Glove finalist behind the plate. He earned $3.55 million last year, in which he appeared in a career high 128 games.

In six MLB seasons, Ramos has a .258 career batting average with 61 home runs and 241 RBIs.
