The Tigers and 2013 American League Cy Young Winner Max Scherzer have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $15.525M.

Shockingly, Schrezer's deal is for almost exactly half of the yearly cost that Clayton Kershaw is going to rack up for the next seven years. Pretty sure that Scherzer isn't 50 percent the pitcher that Kershaw is, but so is the economics of the game.ANALYST: Ray Flowers Mobile App
