David Price avoids arbitration with Tigers, sets record
The Tigers and left-hander David Price have agreed to a one-year, $19.75 million contract for the 2015 season to avoid salary arbitration, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.
It’s the richest deal for a player in an arbitration year. Price, who earned $14 million last year, is eligible to become a free agent following the season.
Price, 29, was 4-4 with a 3.59 ERA in 11 starts for the Tigers after being acquired from the Rays in a trade last season. He was a four-time All-Star with the Rays and won the American League Cy Young award in 2012.
