ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the Tigers and free agent pitcher Mike Fiers have agreed on a one-year, $6 million contract. He notes that the Orioles had offered Fiers two years.
Fiers, 32, just won a championship with the Astros but was non-tendered last week. He had a disappointing regular season, posting a 5.22 ERA with a 146/62 K/BB ratio in 153 1/3 innings. He did not appear in the postseason.
Fiers will join the back end of a rotation that includes Jordan Zimmermann, Michael Fulmer, Matt Boyd, and Daniel Norris.
