DETROIT, MI (WTVB) - It’s arbitration filing deadline day and the Tiger players expected to file are pitchers Max Scherzer, Rick Porcello and Al Alburquerque, along with outfielders Austin Jackson and Andy Dirks and catcher Alex Avila. The two sides then have until Friday to exchange salary figures.

If the club can’t come to terms, hearings before an arbitration panel will be scheduled in February. Already avoiding arbitration with Detroit are utilityman Don Kelly and pitcher Phil Coke.
