The Chicago Cubs are reportedly close to landing starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez.

“USA Today” reports the right-hander came close to signing a five-year, 75-million-dollar contract, but the Detroit Tigers asked for a chance to make an offer and Sanchez agreed.

Sanchez went 9-and-13 with a 3.86 ERA in 31 starts combined with the Detroit Tigers and Miami Marlins last season.

He was 4-and-6 with a 3.74 ERA in 12 starts with the Tigers in the regular season and then went 1-and-2 with a 1.77 ERA in three postseason starts.

In seven big league seasons, the 29-year-old is 48-and-51 with a 3.75 ERA in 145 career games.

It appears former American League MVP Josh Hamilton is moving to the west coast.

It’s reported that the free-agent outfielder has agreed to a five-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Hamilton is considered the top available bat in this year’s free-agent class.

The 31-year-old slugger hit .285 with 43 home runs and 128 RBI this past season with the Texas Rangers.

The Angels inked top free-agent slugger Albert Pujols (POO-holes) to a ten-year contract last winter.
