WASHINGTON (AP) -- Stephen Strasburg has agreed to a one-year, $3,975,000 deal with the Washington Nationals.

Strasburg avoided arbitration by agreeing to the contract, which was announced Friday night.

This would have been the first season Strasburg was eligible for arbitration. The 25-year-old right-hander is 29-19 over four seasons, including 8-9 last year with a 3.00 ERA in 30 starts.
