FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox' streak of avoiding salary arbitration hearings with their players remains intact.
The Sox, who settled with most of their arbitration-eligible players on the day figures were exchanged last month, reached agreement with their lone remaining unsigned arbitration-eligible player, Andrew Miller, late Saturday night.
Miller and the Sox were set to go to a hearing Tuesday if they failed to reach agreement.
Miller will receive "just over'' $1.9 million for 2014, according to an industry source.
The lefty reliever, who missed most of the second half of the season with a broken foot, had asked for $2.15 million; the Red Sox had countered at $1.55 million.
The halfway point between the two figures would have been $1.85 million, with Miller getting a salary slightly more than that.
The lefty reliever was 1-2 with a 2.64 ERA, averaging 14.1 strikeouts per nine innings.
The last time the Sox went to arbitration with a player was 2002, with pitcher Rolando Arrojo.
Alex Speier of WEEI.com was first to report the agreement.
