The Brewers and right-hander Kameron Loe avoided arbitration today by agreeing to a one-year, $1.25 million contract, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com.

Loe requested $1.65 million and was offered $1.055 million from the Brewers when arbitration figures were exchanged earlier this week. While this contract is below the midpoint, the 29-year-old right-hander can make up the difference should he earn an additional $115,000 in performance-bonuses based on appearances up to 78 games.

Loe, who spent the 2009 season in Japan, posted a 2.78 ERA and 46/15 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings with the Brewers last season. He ranked ninth among major league relievers with at least 50 innings last season with a ground ball rate of 59.4 percent.
