Detroit Tigers reportedly sign starting pitcher Julio Teheran to minor league deal
DETROIT – The Detroit Tigers have signed veteran starting pitcher Julio Teheran to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training, according to multiple reports. Teheran opted for an NRI deal with the Tigers over a guaranteed deal elsewhere because he got a base of $3M plus $1M in games started incentives. The guaranteed deal was a low base with minimal upside. Teheran is banking on his ability to make the team out of spring training and stick in the rotation. Detroit’s pitchers and catchers reported to spring training in Lakeland earlier this week as they look forward to their first season under manager A.J.
