Kansas City, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - The Detroit Tigers have agreed to terms with pitcher Joel Hanrahan on a one-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Hanrahan is coming off Tommy John surgery performed last May while with the Boston Red Sox. He appeared in just nine games for Boston last season, earning four saves with a record of 0-1 and a 9.82 ERA.

The 32-year-old right-hander signed with the Red Sox as a free agent after two solid seasons as a closer for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He converted 76 saves in 84 opportunities during the 2011 and 2012 seasons with Pittsburgh, earning All-Star nods each year.

Hanrahan owns a career record of 22-18 with 100 saves and a 3.85 ERA in 362 games, all but 11 as a reliever, during a seven-year career with Boston, Pittsburgh and Washington.
