[January 26, 2010]  MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Dave Bush and the Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to a one-year contract for $4,215,000.

HardwareWith the deal Monday, the sides averted an arbitration hearing.

The right-hander went 5-9 with a 6.38 ERA in 21 starts and one relief appearance last season, when he made $4 million. He struggled after being hit with a line drive on June 4 against the Marlins, going 2-7 with a 9.27 ERA in his final 10 starts.

Bush asked for $4.45 million in arbitration, while Milwaukee offered $4,125,000.

The Brewers have two players remaining in arbitration: right-hander Carlos Villanueva and outfielder Corey Hart. General manager Doug Melvin has never gone to an arbitration hearing since taking over in Milwaukee in 2002.
