De­troit also reached agree­ments with left­handers Matthew Boyd ($2.6 mil­lion), Daniel Nor­ris ($1,275,000) and Blaine Hardy ($1.3 mil­lion). Right-han­der Michael Ful­mer is the Tigers’ only ar­bi­tra­tion-el­i­gi­ble player with­out a deal. He asked for $3.4 mil­lion and was of­fered $2.8 mil­lion.
