Anibal Sanchez has re-signed with the Detroit Tigers. Sanchez will receive $80 million over the next five seasons. This news comes a day after reports suggested that the right handed pitcher had chosen to sign a deal with the Chicago Cubs. Those reports proved to be false. Sanchez was acquired by the Tigers at the July trade deadline from the Florida Marlins. After the trade Sanchez went 4-6, with a 3.74 ERA in 12 regular season starts. He will join Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer and Doug Fister in the Tigers rotation. The team figures to have Rick Porcello and Drew Smyly compete for the fifth rotation spot in spring trailing. In seven big league seasons Sanchez owns a career 48-51 record, 3.75 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.
