Report: Tigers to add Penny
By Sports Network
DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers have reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year deal with pitcher Brad Penny, pending the outcome of a physical exam.
Foxsports.com is indicating that the deal is worth $3 million in base salary plus incentives.
The 32-year-old right-hander made nine starts for St. Louis last season, going 3-4 with a 3.23 earned run average before suffering what turned into a season- ending strained right latissimus dorsi muscle injury in late May.
Penny has compiled a 108-88 record and 4.11 ERA over 288 games -- 284 as a starter -- over an 11-year big league career with the Marlins, Dodgers, Red Sox, Giants and Cardinals.
