Getty Images’s Jason Beck reports that the Tigers and starter Michael Fulmer have avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year deal worth $2.8 million for the 2020 season. It was Fulmer’s second of four years of arbitration eligibility.

Fulmer, 26, sat out the 2019 season recovering from Tommy John surgery. He won’t start this upcoming season on time, but he is expected to make his return prior to the All-Star break.

Across parts of three seasons in the majors, Fulmer holds a 3.81 career ERA with 356 strikeouts and 128 walks over 456 innings of work.
