That didn't take long: Tigers sign Valverde

By the Detroit News

Minneapolis — The Tigers, who blew a late lead against the Minnesota Twins in the second game of the season Wednesday, on Thursday took a step to try to resolve their bullpen issues.

They brought back Jose Valverde.

Valverde signed a minor league contract and will report to Lakeland, where the Tigers will evaluate his ability to pitch in the major leagues again.

The opt-out clause for Valverde is May 5.

The Tigers did not re-sign Valverde at the end of the 2012 season and he became a free agent but did not find any takers in the off-season. Valverde had been Detroit's closer from 2010-12.
