Verlander, Tigers Working To Avoid Arbitration

Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski said Monday that he’s hopeful the club can reach agreement with right-hander Justin Verlander before a February 13 arbitration hearing.

"We’re really still hopeful that we can get a deal negotiated and not go to arbitration," Dombrowski said.  "We continue to have conversations."

Verlander asked for $4.15MM while the Tigers submitted a $3.2MM bid.  Dombrowski hasn’t required an arbitration hearing since he took over as general manager in 2002.
