Detroit Tigers sign RHP Jose Urena to one-year, $3.25 million deal

The Detroit Tigers’ 2021 rotation continues to take shape as the team added a veteran starter in right-hander Jose Urena on a one-year, $3.25 million deal.

A source with knowledge of the deal confirmed the signing to the Free Press on Wednesday, and the Tigers later announced the move.

Urena was non-tendered by the Miami Marlins earlier this month after six seasons in the big leagues and five starts in 2020.

“Once José became available, we had him identified as a player that could come in and help our ballclub win games,” Tigers general manager Al Avila said in a released statement. “We’re excited to add his experience pitching at a high level, and know he’ll contribute to our young staff in significant ways. José has a great ability to navigate a lineup and limit damage, while keeping his team in the game, which is exactly the stability we’re looking for heading into the 2021 season.”
