article imageDetroit Tigers sign pitcher to 1-year, $3 million contract

By Matt Harding     Jan 11, 2011 in Sports
The Detroit Tigers have signed 32 year old Brad Penny to a one-year deal worth $3 million plus $3 million more in incentives.
The deal, pending a physical, is set in stone. Penny has been with five other teams during his career; he's played four and a half seasons each with both the Florida Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers.
The deal solidifies the Detroit Tiger's starting rotation. Signing Penny leaves little to no chance that the club will resign pitcher Jeremy Bonderman, who was a rookie for the Tigers in 2003. Freddy Garcia, another pitcher the Tigers showed interest in, will now be desperately trying to find a new team for 2011.
Last year, Penny, in an injury-shortened season, went 3-4 with a 3.23 ERA with the St. Louis Cardinals.
