Todd Zolecki of reports that the Phillies and infielder Kevin Frandsen have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $900,000 contract. The deal includes performance bonuses.

Frandsen was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter. The 31-year-old made a salary of $850,000 this past season while hitting .234/.296/.341 with five home runs and 26 RBI over 278 plate appearances.

After making starts at first base, second base and the hot corner this year, Frandsen figures to serve as an active utility player for Philadelphia again in 2014.

    Why, Ruben? You have two younger, cheaper, better players for those roles.

    Ruben heeds evaluations of his bench in the same way he loves evaluations of his farm system.
