Dave Bush, Brewers Avoid Arbitration

Two down, four to go.

Tom Haudricourt reports that Milwaukee and pitcher Dave Bush have avoided arbitration by agreeing to terms for the 2009 season. No word on money yet, but Haudricourt guesses it’ll be somewhere near the $4.65 million purse J.J. Hardy just agreed to.

It’s not much of a surprise to see Bush and the Brewers pound out a deal, but it’s always good to avoid arbitration. And Dave Bush will likely play a big role this coming season, as he’s expected to hold one of the spots in the rotation.

Rickie Weeks, Corey Hart, Seth McClung and Prince Fielder are the remaining arbitration eligible players that have yet to sign for 2009.

More financial details as they arrive. Look for them in Friday’s In the News.

Update: The official site says Bush’s contract is worth $4 million. That’s a lot of pitcher for the money.
