Tigers Avoid All Arbitration, Sign 6 for 2017
The Detroit Tigers will go another offseason without worrying about an arbitration hearing. They signed all six of their arbitration eligible players on Friday.
Jose Iglesias will make the most money of that group, his deal is worth $4.1 million. Castellanos comes in 2nd at $3 million.
The rest of the money rounds out with the remaining four players making about $6 million. It breaks down as Rondon ($850,000), A. Wilson ($1.175 million), Romine ($1.3 million) and J. Wilson ($2.7 million).
The Tigers haven't had an arbitration hearing in over 15 years, and after a minor spending spree they continue that streak.
