The Detroit Tigers have agreed to a contract with free agent reliever Joba Chamberlain, multiple media outlets reported Thursday.
The contract is for one year at $2.5 million plus incentives, according to CBSSports.com.
The 28-year-old Chamberlain had a 4.93 ERA in 42 relief innings for the New York Yankees last season. For his career, he owns a 3.51 ERA out of the bullpen.
Chamberlain missed a month last season because of an abdominal strain, underwent Tommy John surgery in June 2011 and then suffered a serious ankle dislocation in March of 2012.
