The Detroit Tigers and former Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain have agreed to terms on a one year deal.
According to reports, the contract will pay the 28-year-old right handed pitcher two-point-five-million-dollars.
Chamberlain had spent his entire seven-year MLB career with New York and was a former starter, but over the last three seasons he has been dealing with several injuries, including dislocating his ankle and an elbow issue that lead to Tommy John surgery in 2011.
Last season Chamberlain went 2-1 with a 4.93 ERA over 42 innings.
