Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE
Tigers owner Mike Ilitch is interested in keeping Anibal Sanchez on the roster.
Immediately after signing Hunter, Tigers owner Mike Ilitch turned his attention to re-signing Sanchez.
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com is reporting that Sanchez is looking for a six-year deal worth in the neighborhood of $90 million.
By signing Hunter, the Tigers addressed their need in right field and the second spot in the lineup, and re-signing Sanchez would solidify a starting rotation that includes Justin Verlander, Doug Fister and Max Scherzer.
If the Tigers are unable to re-sign Sanchez, reports indicate that it's unlikely that they will pursue other free agents to complete the rotation.
