WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Nationals agreed to contracts with six of their seven arbitration-eligible players, including a $2,337,500, one-year deal with left-handed starter Ross Detwiler.
Other players agreeing to terms with the NL East champion Nationals on Friday, avoiding arbitration: shortstop Ian Desmond, right-handed relievers Tyler Clippard and Craig Stammen, and outfielder Roger Bernadina.
The Nationals agreed to a $2.5 million, one-year contract with right-handed reliever Drew Storen on Thursday.
Detwiler earned $485,000 last season, when he went 10-8 with a 3.40 ERA in 33 appearances, including 27 starts, for the Nationals.
Stammen agreed to a two-year contract after going 6-1 with one save, a 2.34 ERA and 87 strikeouts in 88 1-3 innings across 59 relief appearances in 2012.
The agreements leave right-handed starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann as Washington's last player who can enter arbitration. Zimmermann went 12-8 with a 2.94 ERA last season, making 32 starts and pitching 195 2-3 innings.
