Arbitration: Drew Storen and Nationals avoid arbitration

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.
