McCann, Tigers reach 1-year deal for $2,375,000

DETROIT (AP) Catcher James McCann and the Detroit Tigers have agreed to a $2,375,000, one-year contract that avoided arbitration.

The 27-year-old hit .253 with 13 home runs and 49 RBIs last season and made $552,100. He was eligible for arbitration for the first time.

Four Tigers are still eligible for arbitration: third baseman Nicholas Castellanos, shortstop Jose Iglesias and right-handers Shane Greene and Alex Wilson.

Detroit also announced Thursday it claimed 25-year-old right-hander Johnny Barbato off waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates. Barbato went 0-1 with a 4.08 ERA last season in 24 relief appearances.
