Tigers and LHP Blaine Hardy avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract.
Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. The 30-year-old left-hander struggled in 2017, registering a 5.94 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 28/13 K/BB ratio across 33 1/3 innings. Prior to that though, he had been a dependable left-handed option in the club's bullpen for three seasons. Sat, Nov 25, 2017 10:42:00 AM
