Price and the Tigers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $19.75 million contract Friday, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

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.

Price will start Game 3 of the ALDS against the Orioles on Sunday, MLive.com reports.

The decision to start Max Scherzer in Thursday's Game 1 was an easy one for manager Brad Ausmus, but there were several conversations about whether to start Justin Verlander or Price in Game 2. Verlander finished strong during the regular season and will thus be rewarded with the start over Price, who posted a 3.59 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 82:15 K:BB in his 11 starts for Detroit. Price will then go Sunday, with Rick Porcello to follow should the series go to four games.

Price logged 7.1 scoreless innings in Sunday's division-clinching win over Minnesota. He scattered four hits while racking up eight strikeouts.

Price was at his best in this one and his quality start helped Detroit snag the AL Central crown. The left-hander has had a couple shaky starts in September, yet still posted excellent numbers (3.26 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 271 strikeouts) across 248.1 total innings in the regular season.

Despite tossing 8.2 innings Tuesday, Price came away with a no-decision against the White Sox, giving up three earned runs on eight hits while fanning eight and not issuing a walk.

A walkoff single by Miguel Cabrera in the bottom of the ninth handed the Tigers -- and more specifically, Joe Nathan -- the win after Price gave up a pair of runs in the ninth to allow Chicago to tie things up. Price will get the ball again against Minnesota in the final game of the regular season Sunday in a tilt that could have enormous playoff implications for the current AL East-leading Tigers.

Price (14-12) picked up the loss Wednesday, allowing five runs on eight hits with three walks and five strikeouts over 5.2 innings against the Twins.

Right on cue, Price follows a terrific start with a dud. The left-hander is 3-3 with a 4.12 ERA and a 66:13 K:BB ratio over nine starts for the Tigers. Price will face the White Sox on Tuesday.

Price kept the Indians at bay Friday night, allowing one run on eight hits, he did not walk a batter and struck out seven over 7.2 innings of a 7-2 victory.

It's been an up and down couple of months for Price (14-11, 3.26 ERA) but this was a strong performance as the Tigers battle it out for the division title with Kansas City. He threw 75 of 106 pitches for strikes and will try to keep the momentum going in his next start on the road against the Twins.

Price struck out 11 and walked one while giving up five runs on nine hits over 8.2 innings in a losing effort Saturday against the Giants.

After a four-run first inning, Price settled down and kept the Giants' offense relatively quiet. Unfortunately for Price and the Tigers, Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco bullpen managed to do just enough to keep Price from spitting the hook. Price is lined up to face Cleveland at home on Friday in his next scheduled start.

Price won Monday against the Indians as he pitched seven innings and allowed one run, eight hits and two walks to go along with eight strikeouts.

Price righted the ship Monday after getting hammered in his last start against the Yankees. Poor starts have been few and far between for Price this season as he has a 3.25 ERA and 1.07 WHIP overall.

Price allowed eight runs on 12 hits over two innings in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

The eight runs allowed matched his total from his first four starts with the Tigers combined. In addition to the ratio damage, the poor outing Wednesday put even more strain on the heavily worked Detroit bullpen Wednesday. Price will make two starts next week, first in Cleveland on Monday before a home start against the Giants on September 6.

Price (12-9) took a tough-luck loss to his old Rays mates Thursday, going eight innings and allowing just an unearned run on one hit and nine strikeouts.

Price was about as good as you can be, but a first-inning error and then the lone hit he allowed -- an RBI triple by Brandon Guyer -- were all that Alex Cob and the Rays needed. Following that first-inning run, Price tossed seven perfect innings, but it wasn't enough. Now just 1-1 in four starts as a Tiger, Price will have to hope for more offensive support when he faces the Yankees on Wednesday.
