Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports that reliever Jose Valverde has signed a two-year, $14 million contract with the Tigers.
The new contract reportedly includes an option for a third year at $9 million.

Likewise, Valverde actually managed to do quite well for himself, given that the Tigers were the only realistic possibility for him to close. Because Valverde was a Type A free agent, the Tigers will surrender their first-round pick (19th). Jan. 14 - 4:41 pm et

To spend that money a month later doesn't make sense to me. If I claim that I can't afford my mortgage anymore because of the economy and are therefore forced to sell my house it would be hard to justify going out and buying another house with the exact same mortgage.
