ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Gabe Gross and the Tampa Bay Rays agreed to a $1,255,000, one-year contract Wednesday, avoiding salary arbitration.
The 29-year-old outfielder batted .242 with a career-best 13 homers and 38 RBIs in 127 games for the AL champions after being acquired from Milwaukee last season in an April 22 trade that sent right-hander Josh Butler to the Brewers.
Gross made 75 starts in right field and four in center. He also tied a club record by producing the winning RBI in three of the Rays' 11 walk-off victories. Of his 38 RBIs, 14 either tied a game or gave Tampa Bay the lead.
