Baseball-Tigers sign prized free agent pitcher Zimmermann

The Detroit Tigers found the top tier, workhorse starting pitcher they desired in signing free agent Jordan Zimmermann to a five-year deal, the Major League Baseball club said on Monday. The Tigers would not specify the terms of the contract but various media reports put the figure at $110 million. Zimmermann, 29, had Tommy John elbow surgery in 2009 but has become a model of durability since, delivering at least 32 starts and 195 innings in each of the last four seasons with the Washington Nationals with a cumulative record of 58-32.
