DETROIT — The Detroit Tigers have agreed on a one-year, $2.1 million contract with All-Star shortstop Jose Iglesias, averting arbitration.

Iglesias hit .300 last season with two home runs, 23 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. It was a successful return for the smooth-fielding infielder after he missed all of 2014 with stress fractures in both shins.

Iglesias turned 26 earlier this month.

The Tigers have only one unsigned player left who filed for arbitration, and that's slugging outfielder J.D. Martinez. He asked for $8 million and was offered $6 million.

Iglesias, reliever Justin Wilson and infielder Andrew Romine agreed to deals. Iglesias' deal was made Friday.
