The Chicago White Sox have agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.2-million contract with right-handed pitcher Tony Pena, avoiding arbitration.

Pena, 28, went 1-2 with a 3.75 ERA (15 ER/36.0 IP), one save and 29 strikeouts in 35 relief appearances last season with the White Sox. He was acquired from the Diamondbacks on July 7 in exchange for minor-leaguer Brandon Allen. He combined to go 6-5 with a 3.99 ERA (31 ER/70.0 IP) and 55 strikeouts in 72 games in 2009 between Arizona and the Sox. Since the start of the 2007 season, Pena ranks fifth in baseball with 66 holds.

Left-handed pitcher John Danks is the White Sox last arbitration-eligible player.
