Tigers finish up contract dealings

The entire Tigers 40-man roster is now under contract. The team agreed to terms on one-year contracts with Al Alburquerque, Brennan Boesch and Daniel Schlereth. The remaining three unsigned players — Alex Avila, Doug Fister and Austin Jackson — all had their contracts renewed by the team.

All three renewals are players who are eligible for arbitration next winter. In some cases, a renewal can be part of a player’s argument going into an arbitration case later. It usually doesn’t come into play, since the Tigers haven’t had to go to an arbitration hearing on a player in 10 years.
