Nationals avoided arbitration with LHP Ross Detwiler by agreeing to a one-year, $2.3375 million contract.
He’ll have a shot to earn more through incentives. Detwiler, who was in his first year of arbitration, posted a 3.40 ERA over 164 1/3 innings for the Nats in 2013. He’ll be the club’s No. 5 starter in 2013.
