Report: Tigers, Anibal Sanchez agree to terms
The Detroit Tigers will re-sign right-handed pitcher Anibal Sanchez, according to multiple national baseball writers.
USA Today’s Bob Nightengale later tweeted that the sides have agreed at five years and $80 million, and several other reporters confirmed the report within minutes.
Talk of a Tigers vs. Chicago Cubs bidding war for Sanchez started Thursday night.
If the numbers are true, Sanchez will be making more money than ace Justin Verlander, who signed a five-year, $79.5-million contract three years ago. (Detroit Free Press)
