WASHINGTON -- Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals have agreed to a $7.4 million, one-year contract and avoided salary arbitration.

Washington also agreed Friday to one-year deals with starter Doug Fister ($11.4 million) and reliever Drew Storen ($5.7 million).

Strasburg went 14-11 with a 3.14 ERA last year, and his 242 strikeouts tied for the NL lead. He made $4.1 million.

The 2009 No. 1 overall draft pick is 43-30 with 3.02 ERA over parts of five seasons.

Fister went 16-6 last year with a 2.41 ERA.

Storen regained the closer's job late in the season and finished with 11 saves and a 1.12 ERA.

Washington agreed Thursday with catcher Wilson Ramos ($3.55 million), right-hander Craig Stammen ($2.25 million). Second baseman Danny Espinosa ($1.8 million) and backup catcher Jose Lobaton ($1.2 million).
