The Detroit Tigers made another move to upgrade their bullpen Friday by reaching agreement on a contract with free-agent reliever Joel Hanrahan, a baseball source told ESPN.com.
General manager David Dombrowski is expected to announce the deal on a noon ET conference call.
Hanrahan, 32, is 22-18 with a 3.85 ERA and 100 saves over seven big league seasons with Washington, Pittsburgh and Boston.
He saved a total of 76 games for the Pirates in 2011 and 2012 and made back-to-back National League All-Star teams.
He underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow last May and missed most of the 2013 season.
