Brad Penny On Verge Of Signing With Tigers

Fox Sports’ Jon Morosi is tweeting that Brad Penny is on the verge of signing with the TigersAn update on Foxsports.com has the potential deal at one year, $3 million. Assuming Penny is healthy, he'd be a favorite to win the fifth starter rotation spot.

Penny didn’t make any grand announcement on his Twitter feed like we had hoped, but he did dish out a very telling hint. Somebody expressed their interest in having Penny come to Detroit, adding “2011’s the year of the Tiger!” Penny responded with “I hope”.

Now, why would Penny hope 2011’s the year of the Tiger if he was going to sign with another team? I’d say expect an official announcement to be made sometime Tuesday.
