Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Tigers have signed free agent pitcher Tyson Ross to a one-year, $5.75 million contract.
Ross, 31, pitched for the Padres and Cardinals last year, putting up an aggregate 4.15 ERA with a 122/62 K/BB ratio in 149 2/3 innings. It was his first full, healthy season since 2015.
The Tigers also recently signed Matt Moore, giving them a glut of starters along with Michael Fulmer, Jordan Zimmermann, Matt Boyd, and Daniel Norris. If Ross doesn’t fit into the rotation, he could also be moved into the bullpen.
The Atlanta Braves have signed right-hander Josh Tomlin to a minor league contract with an invitation to the team’s major league camp.
The 34-year-old Tomlin, who was released by Milwaukee on Wednesday, had a 6.14 ERA in 32 games, including nine starts, with Cleveland in 2018. Tomlin was 61-53 with a 4.77 ERA in nine seasons with the Indians.
Tomlin was 2-1 with a 4.80 ERA in five games with the Brewers this spring after joining the team on a minor league deal.
