WASHINGTON (AP) - Right-hander Doug Fister's arbitration-avoiding contract with the Washington Nationals is for one year with a base salary of $7.2 million.
Fister also can earn performance bonuses of $75,000 each for reaching 200 and 210 innings pitched.
He threw 208 2-3 innings last season, when he went 14-9 with a 3.67 ERA for the Detroit Tigers. Washington acquired him in a trade.
Fister made $4,075,000 last season. He had asked for $8.5 million in arbitration, while the Nationals submitted an offer of $5.75 million. They agreed to terms over the weekend.
Only one other Nationals player still could go to arbitration, right-handed reliever Tyler Clippard. He asked for a raise to $6.35 million; the team offered $4.45 million. Clippard made $4 million last season.
