Tigers, Brad Penny Agree To One-Year Deal

Per Jason Beck, the Tigers have agreed to a one-year deal with Brad Penny pending a physical.

The Tigers would not comment on the specifics of the deal, but Beck suggested the FoxSports.com figure ($3 million) is accurate, plus incentives worth up to another $3 million.

Lost in all of this is that the signing officially ends the Jeremy Bonderman era in Detroit. There was a chance the Tigers would re-sign Bonderman, who pitched the last eight years in Detroit, but talks never progressed.

As we said in an earlier update, Penny will compete with Armando Galarraga for the fifth spot in the rotation, but is the clear front-runner.
