Feb 4 (Reuters) - The Detroit Tigers have agreed a new contract with starting pitcher Max Scherzer to avoid salary arbitration, the team announced Monday.
Scherzer will sign a one-year deal worth $6.7 million, according to local reports, bringing an end to negotiations between the two sides.
"We're pleased," said Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski. "We've always been in a position where we try to hopefully negotiate our own deals."
