Unlike Josh Hamilton, Anibal Sanchez is giving his old team the last shot at his services. After being offered a reported $75 million over five years by the Cubs, Sanchez gave the Tigers one more chance to match the offer, CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman reports.
Detroit had been offering a four-year deal to Sanchez, but in reaction to the offer from the Cubs, the team will likely have to offer five years in order to keep him.
The 28-year-old right-hander went 9-13 with a 3.86 ERA in 31 starts for the Tigers and Marlins. He was 4-6 with a 3.74 ERA in 12 starts after his trade to Detroit.
