Tigers, Joel Zumaya avoid arbitration with 1-year deal

The Tigers agreed to terms on a one-year contract with reliever Joel Zumaya on Friday, inking another of their arbitration-eligible players as they try to wrap up their offseason to-do list.

The deal has been expected for a while. Zumaya said earlier this offseason he wasn’t going to be greedy as he looked for a contract. With free agency coming for him next winter, he knows his big payday should come shortly if he can come through with a healthy 2011 season.

Tigers offer contracts to Zumaya, Galarraga; Miner non-tendered

The Tigers announced Thursday they have tendered the arbitration-eligible pitcher Zumaya a 2011 contract. As expected, the Tigers also offered arbitration-eligible pitcher Armando Galarraga a 2011 contract.

The only nontender on Detroits roster was reliever Zach Miner, who was designated for assignment on Monday. Miner, who is coming off elbow surgery, is eligible to re-sign with the Tigers — or any club — as a free agent.
