Stay current with all the roster movement and personnel decisions with the TigsTown Transaction Blog. On Wednesday, the Tigers granted outfielder/utility man Ryan Raburn a two-year extension to avoid arbitration.


Signed Ryan Raburn (OF) to a two-year contract

Analysis: Raburn's contract status wasn't really in doubt, but the Tigers went the extra mile to ink him for both the 2011 and 2012 seasons. The deal does avoid a one-year arbitration deal, and demonstrates a bit more of a commitment to him as their left fielder for the next couple of years.

Signed Brad Penny (RHP)

Analysis: The Tigers finally made a move that many fans were asking for, inking another starter to help provide some depth at the back of the rotation. Penny's deal is a one-year contract with a base salary of $3 million, and up to $3 million more in incentives. Given his contract, it is likely Penny will be in the rotation on Opening Day, and likely at the expense of Armando Galarraga's spot in the rotation.
