Tigers and RHP Max Scherzer avoided arbitration Monday by agreeing to a one-year contract.

Terms weren't disclosed, but Scherzer requested $7.4 million and was offered $6.05 million from the Tigers when arbitration figures were exchanged last month. The 28-year-old right-hander was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter and is under team control through 2014.
