The Detroit Tigers have signed former Red Sox reliever Joel Hanrahan to a free-agent contract. The 32-year old Hanrahan had a short and disastrous stay in Boston, after saving 76 games for Pittsburgh in 2011-2012. After injuring his elbow while pitching for the Red Sox, Hanrahan had Tommy John surgery—missing almost all of the 2013 season. The Red Sox were among five teams expressing interest in the right-hander.
