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.

19 MIL for a 500 pitcher??? And that’s not an aberration. He’s a nice kid with great stuff, but when it comes to putting people away, he’s very inconsistent. Take the 5 mil raise and give Max the moon- -he deserves it.
