The Angels avoided arbitration with utility man Robb Quinlan, signing him for a one-year deal worth $1.1 million. The contract includes $125,000 based on plate appearances. He will receive $25,000 for making his 250th plate appearance and $50,000 each for his 300th and 350th.

Primarily a corner infielder, Quinlan hit .262 with a home run and 11 runs batted in in 68 games last season. He made 181 plate appearances.

With Quinlan signed, pitcher Ervin Santana and infielder Maicer Izturis are the only Angels who remain eligible for arbitration.
