The Rays agreed to terms today with infielder Sean Rodriguez on a one-year, $1 million contract, thus avoiding arbitration.

Rodriguez, who is in his first year of arbitration eligibility, made $492,800 last season.

Rodriguez began the 2012 season as the Rays Opening Day shortstop but quickly lost the job. He was even sent to Triple A Durham in August. (His 2012 stats: http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/r/rodrise01.shtml)

The Rays, though, need depth at infield, and Rodriguez still fits that bill.
