CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a one-year contract with All-Star pitcher Travis Wood, avoiding arbitration.

A person familiar with the situation said Friday that the deal is for $3.9 million. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the terms were not announced by the team.

Wood was the Cubs' most consistent starter last year and made the All-Star team, going 9-12 with a 3.11 ERA. Wood had filed at $4.25 million with the team countering at $3.5 million.

The Cubs' remaining arbitration-eligible players are pitcher Jeff Samardzija, second baseman Darwin Barney and outfielder Justin Ruggiano.
