Brewers, Loe agree to $1.25M, 1-year deal

Right-hander Kameron Loe and the Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to a $1.25 million, one-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration.

The reliever was 3-5 with a 2.78 ERA in 53 appearances for the Brewers last season, becoming a key member in stabilizing a bullpen that struggled early in the year.

Beyond his base salary, Loe can receive up to $115,000 in performance bonuses: $25,000 for 50 games, $30,000 for 55, $35,000 for 60, $10,000 for 76 and $15,000 for 78.

The 29-year-old asked for $1.65 million when salary figures were exchanged last week. The Brewers offered $1,055,000.

Shaun Marcum and Rickie Weeks remain in arbitration with the Brewers.
