Nippert Avoids Arbitration

Texas signed pitcher DUSTIN NIPPERT to a one-year contract for $665,000.

With two years, 140 days of MLB service time, Nippert gained "Super 2" arbitration status by exactly one day. That extra day is worth almost $250,000. Nippert pitched inconsistently in 2009, as always, but with enough of the variance on the happy side to be pretty useful. He's a dark-horse rotation candidate, more likely a mop.
