The Mets and Angel Pagan have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.5 million contract.

Pagan will be arbitration-eligible one more time next offseason before being eligible for free agency during the 2012-13 winter.

Pagan had requested $4.2 million, with the club countering at $3.0625 million. He made $1,662,500 in 2010.

"For the first time in my career I have a spot on the team," Pagan said in a statement released by the team. "But I'm not taking anything for granted. I can’t wait for spring training to start. I think we’ll be better than people are predicting."
