Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - The Washington Nationals averted arbitration with Stephen Strasburg by agreeing to terms with the ace pitcher on an undisclosed contract.

Strasburg is in his first season as an arbitration-eligible player after the four-year, $15.1 million major league deal the 2009 No. 1 overall draft pick signed to begin his professional career expired at the conclusion of the 2013 campaign.

The hard-throwing right-hander went just 8-9 this past season, but posted a solid 3.00 earned run average in 30 starts and registered 191 strikeouts in 183 innings. Strasburg earned a spot on the National League All-Star squad the previous year, his first full season since returning from Tommy John surgery, and finished 15-6 with a 3.16 ERA and 197 strikeouts while helping the Nationals to an NL East title.

Strasburg underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow in October, but is expected to be ready when Washington begins spring training next month.
