The Detroit Tigers accomplished another goal during their busy off-season, adding depth to their bullpen with Joba Chamberlain.
Chamberlain and the Tigers agreed to terms on a one-year contract, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to the Associated Press because the deal hadn't been announced.
The hard-throwing, right-handed reliever was 2-1 with one save in 45 games and a career-high 4.93 earned-run average last season for the New York Yankees. The converted starter was 23-14 with five saves with a 3.85 ERA over seven seasons with the Yankees.

Last year, Hernandez was 6-13 with a 4.89 ERA for Tampa Bay.
