The Minnesota Twins announced Saturday that Francisco Liriano has agree to a one-year, $4.3 million contract, avoiding arbitration.

Liriano requested $5 million, and the Twins offered $3.6 million. The two sides met in the middle.

Delmon Young, who filed for $6.2 million, is now the lone-remaining arbitration case for the club, which offered $4.6 million.
