PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Phillies and Hunter Pence have agreed to a one-year, $10.4 million contract for the 2012 season, avoiding arbitration according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman.

Pence performed well in his 54 games with the Phillies, hitting .324 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI’s, with an OPS of .954, leading the team in that category. He finished the season hitting .314 with 22 home runs and 97 RBI’s.
