LAKELAND, FL (WTVB) - Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer has declined a long-term contract offer from the club. Scherzer avoided arbitration with Detroit in January, agreeing to a one-year deal that is reportedly worth $15.25 million. The Tigers said Sunday that further discussions would not take place during the season. The reigning American League Cy Young award winner can become a free agent after the 2014 season. ESPN reported the deal rejected by Scherzer would have averaged 24-million dollars year. Scherzer was 21-3 with a 2.90  ERA and 240 strikeouts in 32 starts with the Tigers last year.

In Grapefruit League play yesterday in Lakeland, Detroit closer Joe Nathan allowed 4 runs in the ninth as Miami rallied to beat the Tigers 8-4. Nathan, who signed with Detroit in the off season, had not allowed a run in 8 games this spring. The Tigers will be on the road this afternoon to take on the Pirates.
