Tigers will add free-agent starter Mike Pelfrey, deal expected soon

The Tigers are still looking at pitching, and they will have a deal in place with Mike Pelfrey soon. The terms of the deal are not yet known, but it is believed to be a two-year deal. 

New GM Al Avila has been a busy man. Pelfrey was 6-11 with a 4.26 ERA last season, and he led the AL allowing just 0.6 home runs per nine innings. Avila also traded for closer Francisco Rodriguez. 

Jordan Zimmermann is the big signing this hot stove season for the Tigers, but Detroit needed depth.

Pelfrey made 30 starts last season for the Twins, posting a 1.48 WHIP over 164 2/3 innings pitched.
