ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the Tigers have signed Jose Mesa to a one-year deal for about $2.5MM. He turns 41 next May.
Joe Table switched to relief in ’94 and then had some glory years as the Tribe’s closer. After that he bounced around to about eight million teams with varying success.
With an awful K/BB of 1.08 last year, you have to think Mesa is on the brink of collapse. No one is sure how he helps the Tigers, unless Omar Vizquel is traded to the White Sox.
