Detroit Tigers re-sign pitcher Blaine Hardy to 1-year contract
DETROIT (AP) — The Tigers have agreed to a one-year contract with left-handed reliever Blaine Hardy, a deal that would pay him $795,000 while in the major leagues and $192,009 in the minors.
Hardy, 30, would have become eligible for salary arbitration if offered a contract by the Dec. 1 deadline. He has 2 years, 131 days of major league service — and the cutoff for arbitration eligibility this offseason was 2 years, 119 days.
Hardy went 1-0 with a 5.94 ERA in 35 games for Detroit in 2017.
