Zimmermann's arrival signals Tigers' willingness to spend

DETROIT (AP) Jordan Zimmermann's arrival in Detroit is encouraging news for Tigers fans because of what he can bring to the starting rotation - and what his contract signals about the team's willingness to spend.

Zimmermann was introduced Monday after finalizing a $110 million, five-year contract with the Tigers. He was flanked at the news conference by general manager Al Avila and owner Mike Ilitch, the latter making a rare appearance in front of reporters during a turbulent year for his baseball team.

"I don't care about spending money," Ilitch said. "They get the players and I spend and I don't worry about it, because they have good judgment. We've had good teams over the years, and it's a lot of fun for me."
