NL East: Armas remains with Nationals

The Washington Nationals avoided arbitration with SP Tony Armas: he signed a one-year, $2.26 million dollar contract on Sunday. He was 2-4 with a 4.88 ERA in 16 starts in 2004 and is expected to be the No. 2 guy in the rotation this year.

He's "stupposedly" completely healthy for the first time in two years, after shoulder surgery cut short his 2003 campaign. Armas' Venezuelan Winter League numbers look good: 1-0 with a 1.44 ERA in seven starts.
