Arizona also agreed with left-handed reliever Andrew Chafin, right-handers Taijuan Walker and Brian Boxberger, outfielder David Peralta, infielder/outfielder Chris Owings, infielder Nick Ahmed and catcher Chris Herrmann on Friday.

That leaves starter Shelby Miller as the lone player left remaining out of the 13 eligible for arbitration. He lost in arbitration a year ago, getting $4.7 million instead of the $5.1 million he sought. He is expected to miss at least half of the 2018 season. Walker ($4,825,000) was 9-9 with a 3.49 ERA.

Lamb was a significant player in the lineup of the team that earned the top spot in the NL wild-card race previous year. He hit 30 home runs with 105 RBIs.

Ray ($3.95 million) was 15-5 with a 2.89 ERA.

Chafin was the No. 1 lefty out of the bullpen. His 71 appearances were more than other Arizona pitcher.

Those players join reliever Brad Boxberger, starter Patrick Corbin and reliever Randall Delgado as those to avoid arbitration and sign a one-year deal.
