Tigers' Jake Rogers: Avoids arbitration
Rogers and the Tigers agreed to a one-year, $1.7 million deal Thursday to avoid arbitration, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
The 28-year-old backstop slashed .221/.286/.444 with 21 home runs and a 32.3 percent strikeout rate in 107 games last year. He is a career .205 hitter, but Rogers grades out well as a defensive catcher, so he should continue to play a sizable role for the Tigers.... See More ... See Less

Rogers went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's suspended game against the Royals, which resumed Thursday.
