SAN DIEGO (AP) - Outfielder Will Venable and the San Diego Padres have avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract worth $2,675,000, a raise of $1.2 million.

The 30-year-old hit .264 last year with nine homers and 45 RBIs.

Seven Padres remain in arbitration: shortstop Everth Cabrera; third baseman Chase Headley; right-handers Edinson Volquez and Luke Gregerson; left-handers Clayton Richard and Joe Thatcher; and catcher John Baker.
