(TSX / STATS) -- The Cleveland Indians avoided arbitration with Dan Otero, signing the right-handed reliever to a two-year, $2.5 million contract on Tuesday.

The deal includes a team option worth $1.5 million for the 2020 season, the Indians announced.

Otero posted an 8-1 mark with a 2.14 ERA in 114 relief appearances for the Indians the past two seasons, including a 3-0 record in 2017.

The Indians acquired Otero from the Philadelphia Phillies in December 2015 in exchange for cash considerations. The 32-year-old owns a 20-7 mark with a 2.91 ERA in six major league seasons with the San Francisco Giants, Oakland Athletics and Indians.
