CLEVELAND -- The Indians avoided salary arbitration with reliever Bryan Shaw by agreeing to a one-year, $2.75 million contract for next season with the steady right-hander.
Shaw is Cleveland's primary set-up man for closer Cody Allen, one of four players still eligible for arbitration.
The 28-year-old Shaw went 3-3 with a 2.95 ERA in a team-high 74 games last season. He has pitched in at least 70 games in each of his three seasons with Cleveland, which acquired him in a three-team trade from Arizona following the 2012 season.
Shaw is 15-11 with a 2.93 ERA in 224 appearances -- the most in the majors since 2013 -- for Cleveland. He earned $1.55 million last year.
The 28-year-old was 3-3 with a 2.95 ERA in 74 relief appearances last season, when he was a setup man for Cody Allen.
