The Detroit Tigers today announced the club has agreed to terms on a five-year contract, with a club option for 2018, with righthanded pitcher Anibal Sanchez.
The Anibal Sanchez signing set up the Tigers to trade a pitcher for a hitter.
Eighty million for a number four starter. I understand it’s not my money so I shouldn’t care.
CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman reports that the Cubs have bowed out of the bidding for free-agent right-hander Anibal Sanchez.
After a hot close to the 2012 regular season and a great performance in the playoffs, free-agent starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez is one of the most attractive pitching options on the market.
Sanchez, 28, went 9-13 with a 3.86 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 167 strikeouts in 195 2/3 innings last season for the Marlins and Tigers, though he caught fire down the stretch.
Free-agent pitcher Anibal Sanchez will test the market
Now, with their World Series hopes slipping away, the Detroit Tigers turn to Anibal Sanchez – the least physically imposing member of their postseason rotation.
The temperature will be chillier and the Detroit Tigers are hoping home field will cool off the San Francisco Giants in the World Series soon.
Starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez must go at least six innings.
