Continuing their tradition of not going to arbitration with players in the Theo Epstein era, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with first baseman Kevin Youkilis. He'll make $3 million dollars this season on a one-year deal.

Youkilis had come in far from the number offered by the team. He asked for $3.7 million, while the team offered $2.525 million. Last season the Red Sox ended up renewing his contract at $424,500.

Relievers Kyle Snyder and Javier Lopez were the other Sox players who were eligible for arbitration this offseason. Lopez signed for $840,000. Snyder exchanged numbers with the Sox before signing a one-year contract for $835,000.
