Tigers Nearing Deal With Joaquin Benoit

The Tigers are nearing a three-year deal with reliever Joaquin Benoit, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX SportsMorosi tweets that the contract "is in [the] final stages of discussion."     

Benoit signed a minor league deal with the Rays in February and was one of baseball's best bargains.  The righty posted a 1.34 ERA, 11.2 K/9, 1.6 BB/9, 0.9 HR/9, and 38.9% groundball rate in 60 1/3 innings.  The 33-year-old was available cheaply because he was coming off rotator cuff surgery performed in January of 2009.  This time around, the Tigers had to pay full sticker price.
