The Cubs made their biggest move so far this off-season on Thursday, reportedly signing Anibal Sanchez to a five-year deal pending physical on Thursday according to reports from Bob Nightengale of USA Today.  Meanwhile, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports continues to report that Detroit is “very much in the mix“. Sanchez, 28, made his debut with the then-Florida Marlins in 2006, where he had spent his entire career until the trade-deadline trade that sent a package that included Sanchez and Omar Infante to Detroit for a package that included prized pitching prospect Jacob Turner. Sanchez owns a career 3.75 ERA (110 ERA+) and a 1.346 WHIP, including a 3.86 ERA combined between Miami and Detroit in 2012, and his 3.48 strikeouts per base on balls were the highest of his career, and his 1.267 WHIP was his best mark since his rookie season.  The right-hander posted very healthy peripherals of 0.9 HR/9, 2.2 BB/9, and 7.7 K/9.  Sanchez also owns a 1.77 career playoff ERA despite a 1-2 record.
