Tigers sign Galarraga

The Tigers have reached a one year deal to avoid arbitration with Perfecto* Galarraga. Armando was the last remaining arbitration eligible player the Tigers had to deal with, so those headaches have been avoided.

Baseball wise, I guess this makes sense. The rotation is far from set, so Galarraga still has a chance to beat out Penny or Coke. A MLB team can also always use a swing guy that can pitch in long relief, and start in a pinch without a month of being stretched out.

Sentimentally, this was a great signing. After the perfect game* and way he handled everything...

he should be a fan favorite for as long as he wears the Olde English D, and longer. And besides, at least they didn't sign Andres Galarraga.
