The first big name free agent pitcher is off the board.  The Detroit Tigers have signed pitcher Jordan Zimmerman, as first reported by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

The deal is said to be for five years and $110 million, as reported by Jon Morosi of Fox Sports.

Jordan Zimmermann has been a constant top of the rotation starter for the Washington Nationals. In 2015 he posted a 3.66 era in 201.2 innings.

The Detroit Tigers are a bit of a surprise as Zimmermann was linked to other teams, including the Chicago Cubs. The Tigers were also thought to be financially limited as they move closer to the luxury tax threshold.

Nonetheless, Jordan Zimmermann is now a Detroit Tiger.
