Tigers announce 5-year deal with Anibal Sanchez

  •  

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Tigers have agreed to a five-year contract with right-handed pitcher Anibal Sanchez.

Sanchez will be at a news conference Monday afternoon. The team didn't disclose financial terms, but a person familiar with it told The Associated Press last week on condition of anonymity that the deal is worth $80 million.

Sanchez helped Detroit reach the World Series this year. He had a 1.77 ERA in 20 1-3 innings over three postseason starts, but was 1-2 because the Tigers were shut out in each of his losses.

Detroit acquired the 28-year-old Venezuelan in July from Miami along with second baseman Omar Infante for right-hander Jacob Turner and two minor leaguers. He is 48-51 with a 3.75 ERA since making his major league debut with the Marlins in 2006.
