CINCINNATI — All-Star third baseman Todd Frazier and the Cincinnati Reds have agreed to a two-year, $12 million contract, avoiding arbitration.

The Reds announced the deal Sunday on Twitter.

Frazier, who turns 29 on Thursday, gets a $1.5 million signing bonus, a $3 million salary this season and $7.5 million in 2016. When the sides exchanged figures for proposed one-year deals last month, he had asked for $5.7 million and had been offered $3.9 million.

In four major league seasons, Frazier is hitting .258 with a .325 on-base percentage. He has 73 homers and 235 RBIs. He had career highs of 29 homers, 80 RBIs and 20 stolen bases last season and was selected to his first All-Star game.

Closer Aroldis Chapman is the Reds' last player in arbitration. They haven't had a player go to an arbitration hearing since 2004.
