(Reuters) - The Detroit Tigers have agreed a new contract with starting pitcher Max Scherzer to avoid salary arbitration, the team announced Monday.

Scherzer will sign a one-year deal worth $6.7 million, according to local reports, bringing an end to negotiations between the two sides.

"We're pleased," said Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski. "We've always been in a position where we try to hopefully negotiate our own deals."

The 28-year-old Scherzer was the team's second best pitcher last season when he finished 16-7, struck out 231 batters and carried his success into the post-season where he helped the Tigers reach the World Series.

Detroit acquired Scherzer from Arizona following the 2009 season.
