Right-handed pitcher Anibal Sanchez [1] reached agreement to return to the Tigers on a five-year, $80 million contract, his agent told ESPN on Friday morning. Agent Gene Mato confirmed that the free agent will stay in Detroit, following reports a day earlier that Sanchez had a deal with the Cubs for six years and $147 million.

Sanchez, a former Red Sox [2] minor leaguer who was traded by Boston to the Marlins in 2005 along with Hanley Ramirez [3] for Josh Beckett [4] and Mike Lowell [5], was shipped from Miami to Detroit shortly before the trade deadline this past July.

In Detroit, Sanchez went 4-6 with a 3.74 ERA and 57 strikeouts against 15 walks in 74 2/3 innings. In seven major league seasons, Sanchez has a 48-51 record with a 3.74 ERA and 733 strikeouts vs. 320 walks in 869 innings.
