Tigers avoid arbitration with all 8 remaining players

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Tigers agreed to a $6.5 million contract with Matthew Boyd, avoiding arbitration with the left-hander Friday after he struggled during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.

Boyd made a prorated $1,962,963 of his $5.3 million salary last season. He came in with high expectations after striking out a career-best 238 hitters in 2019, but went 3-7 with a 6.71 ERA in 12 starts last year.

The Tigers also agreed to deals with left-hander Daniel Norris ($3,475,000), infielder Jeimer Candelario ($2.85 million), outfielder JaCoby Jones ($2.65 million), utilityman Niko Goodrum ($2.1 million), right-hander Buck Farmer ($1.85 million), right-hander Joe Jimenez ($1.5 million) and right-hander Jose Cisnero ($970,000).
