Astros avoid arbitration with Lowrie

The Astros avoided arbitration with Jed Lowrie today. Lowrie will make $2.4m in 2013, over double the $1.15m he made in 2012 (and $500,000 more than what Baseball-Reference predicted).

This makes Lowrie the 2nd-highest-paid player on the team, behind Carlos Pena ($2.9m minimum).

Bud Norris and Wesley Wright are the lone remaining arbitration-eligible players.
