Tigers Close to Signing Joaquin Benoit

Jon Paul Morosi wrote this morning that the Tigers are close to signing a multi-year deal to bring Joaquin Benoit to Detroit.  Benoit had a hard time finding work at the beginning of the 2010 season after missing all of 2009 and he opted for a minor league deal with the Rays this year.  The Rays hit a home run on this signing because he was lights out as the Rays set up man.  He had a .147 batting average against overall and he sported an impressive 75/11 strikeout to walk ratio in 60 1/3 innings.

With the uncertainty with Joel Zumaya, this could really bolster the pen.  Of course we won’t know if it’s a good deal or not until the numbers are released.
