News: Price and the Tigers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $19.75 million contract Friday, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.
Impact: Price's salary is not cheap, but it still makes him a bargain compared to what he will likely fetch on the free agent market next winter. Price was not as sharp with the Tigers as he was with the Rays last season, but he still posted 4.6 WAR over the entire campaign -- the second best mark of his career.

News: Price has reached a $19.75 million, one-year deal with the Detroit Tigers, avoiding arbitration. Price's contract is the largest one-year deal for a player who filed for arbitration, topping Max Scherzer's $15,525,000 agreement with the Tigers last year.
Impact: Detroit acquired Price in a deadline deal in July, and the move paid dividends when the left-hander held Minnesota scoreless in a division-clinching victory on the final day of the regular season. Detroit won the AL Central for a fourth consecutive year. Price, the 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner, can become a free agent next offseason.
