The fact that he's on the shelf and has a history of arm injuries, yet they signed him to the contract they did, is what makes it a bad signing. I agree it is tough to judge what he's done - but the simple fact that they signed an injury-prone pitcher to that contract makes it a bad deal. However, as they have an "out" should he stay injured, it isn't the worst, IMHO.
The worst to me is Milton - no one I know liked that deal for that pitcher in that ballpark.
Mags is also pretty bad - 5 years at $75M and their only out is if his knee is hurt again this year. No other team offered more than 1 year, yet the Tigers bid against themselves.
