Updated: Rick Porcello, Phil Coke agree to deals with Tigers

MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that the Tigers will avoid arbitration with proceedings with right-hander Rick Porcello, as the 23-year-old will sign a $3.1 million contract.

We will have a story this afternoon before it's too late exploring Porcello's and Max Scherzer's possible contracts, because it was pre-scheduled and the Tigers are acting too fast on this one. The woes of blogging.

MLB.com's Jason Beck confirmed this figure on Twitter.

*UPDATE*

The Tigers announced they have also agreed to a one-year deal with left-hander Phil Coke. They did not announce figures.

The figure floated by MLBTR is $1.1m base salary for Coke.
