Drew Storen, relief pitcher for the Nationals has agreed to terms with the club for 2014.

Joel Sherman reports that the right hander will make $3.45 million in 2014 with incentives based on games finished amounting to $1 million. He made $2.5 million in 2013 as one of the setup men alongside Tyler Clippard behind Rafael Soriano.

Storen had a rough year in 2013, pitching to a 4.52 ERA despite a 3.05 strikeout to walk ratio. He had stepped in as the closer in 2012, but gave up the winning runs to the Cardinals in the NLCS that year.
