Tigers Agree to Terms on One-Year Contract with Al Alburquerque

DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers yesterday announced the club has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with righthanded pitcher Al Alburquerque, thus avoiding arbitration.

Alburquerque, 28, posted a 3-1 record, 2.51 ERA (57.1IP/16ER) and 63 strikeouts in 72 games with the Tigers in 2014. He limited lefthanded hitters to a .245 (27x110) batting average, while righthanded hitters hit .190 (19x100) with him on the mound in 2014.

With this signing, the club has reached agreement with all its arbitration eligible players for 2015.
