CINCINNATI (AP) -- David Weathers and the Cincinnati Reds have avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract that guarantees him $3.9 million.

The 39-year-old reliever has spent the last four years in Cincinnati, where he was 4-6 with a 3.25 ERA last season in 72 appearances. His deal Wednesday includes a $3.5 million salary this year and a $3.7 million club option for 2010 with a $400,000 buyout.

Weathers made $3.3 million last season. He asked for $4.6 million in arbitration and the club offered $3 million.

Third baseman Edwin Encarnacion is the last Reds player in arbitration. He asked for $3.7 million, while the team offered $2.55 million.
