Tiger sign Al Alburquerque(!!!) to a major league deal

The Detroit Tigers made the headline move off the offseason so far, signing relief pitcher Alberto Alburquerque. Details on contract length and cost are not yet announced, but his name alone warrants somewhere in the 5 year/145 million dollar range.  The opportunity for "left turn at Alburquerque" jokes alone make Dunn/Crawford/Werth/VMart talk seem secondary. Here's his baseball reference page, as if it matters....
Al Alburquerque.

If you are wondering, and I know you are, by the fifth spelling, I got his name right without looking.

Congrats, and welcome to Detroit, Al.
