Jose Valverde Agrees To Deal

The Detroit Tigers have agreed to a one-year contract with reliever Jose Valverde, who is expected back with the team Wednesday.

And manager Jim Leyland says Valverde will be Detroit’s closer.

Valverde was the Tigers’ closer the past three years, but the team was prepared to let him leave as a free agent after he faltered during the 2012 postseason. However, he never signed elsewhere, and Detroit brought him back on a minor league deal.
