Villar avoids arbitration by reaching deal with Marlins

MIAMI (AP) — Miami Marlins newcomer Jonathan Villar reached an agreement Friday on an $8.2 million, one-year contract. Right-hander Jose Ureña agreed to $3.75 million and left-hander Adam Conley to $1,525,000. First baseman Jesús Aguilar swapped proposed salaries with the Marlins. He asked for a raise from $637,500 to $2,575,000 and was offered $2,325,000.  The Marlins acquired Villar from the Baltimore Orioles last month for minor league left-hander Easton Lucas. Villar batted .274 with 33 doubles, 24 home runs and 73 RBIs in 162 games for Baltimore in 2019. Ureña was a 14-game winner in 2017 but endured an injury-plagued 2019 season.
