Associated Press The Detroit Tigers made another major move to help their quest to win a World Series for the first time since 1984. Right-handed pitcher Anibal Sanchez agreed to an $80 million, five-year contract with the Tigers, a person familiar with the deal told the Associated Press on Friday. The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement hasn’t been finalized, said Sanchez is scheduled for a physical Monday. Sanchez was a part of Detroit’s four-man rotation that led the franchise to World Series this year. He had a 1.77 ERA in 20 1-3 innings over three postseason starts, but was 1-2 because Detroit was shut out in each of his losses. “He was big for us in the playoffs, I just wish we scored a couple more runs for him and for our team,” Tigers catcher Alex Avila said in a telephone interview with the Associated Press. “He’s a big-time pitcher.” The Tigers acquired the 28-year-old Venezuelan in July from Miami along with second baseman Omar Infante for right-hander Jacob Turner and two minor leaguers.
