The Houston Astros and outfielder George Springer avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year, $24 million deal, reports USA Today.
Springer had filed for $10.5 million in arbitration; Houston countered with a $8.5 million offer.
The deal allows Springer to have one year left of arbitration after this current deal ends.

He was even better in the World Series, hitting .379 with five home runs, seven RBIs and adding with eight runs scored, earning series MVP honors.
