Brad Penny signs with Tigers

A person familiar with the negotiation tells The Associated

Press that right-hander Brad Penny has agreed to a $3 million,

one-year contract with the Detroit Tigers.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the

agreement hasn't been announced. The deal includes $3 million in

performance bonuses.

The 32-year-old is coming off an abbreviated season with the St.

Louis Cardinals. He went on the disabled list in late May with a

strain in his upper back, and although it was believed at the time

to be a minor injury, he didn't pitch again. Penny went 3-4 with a

3.23 ERA in nine starts.

The previous season, Penny started 30 games for Boston and San

Francisco.
