Kevin Jepsen and the Angels have avoid arbitration with a one-year, $1.181 million deal, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

Jepsen was arbitration eligible for the first time after throwing 45 innings with a 3.02 ERA and 38/12 K/BB ratio last season and is in line for a secondary setup man role this year at age 28.

He requested $1.4 million and the Angels countered at $975,000, so he settled for just slightly more than the midpoint. As a “Super Two” player he’ll have four seasons of arbitration eligibility instead of the usual three, so Jepsen is under the Angels’ control through 2016.
