The Red Sox avoided arbitration with lefthanded reliever Franklin Morales tonight, signing him to a one-deal worth $850,000 according to a major league source.

Morales had a 3.62 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 36 appearances last season after being obtained from the Rockies in May.

Alfredo Aceves, Daniel Bard, Mike Aviles, Andrew Bailey, Jacoby Ellsbury and David Ortiz remain unsigned. Unsigned players will exchange proposed figures with their teams at noon tomorrow. Negotiations can continue beyond that. The Red Sox have not gone to a hearing with a player since 2002.
