Free-agent starter Anibal Sanchez is seeking a contract in the neighborhood of six years and $90 million, Fox Sports' Jon Paul Morosi reported Thursday.

The average yearly salary of $15 million is on par with what C.J. Wilson received as the league's top free agent starter last offseason, when he signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels.

Zack Greinke is widely viewed as the top free-agent pitcher this offseason, followed by the interchangeably ranked Sanchez and Kyle Lohse.

Splitting time between the Miami Marlins and Detroit Tigers this season, Sanchez went 9-13 with a 3.86 ERA. He pitched well in the postseason, going 1-2 with a 1.77 ERA.

Morosi reported that at least four teams have interest:

In addition to the Tigers, the Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Dodgers are known to have interest in Sanchez, sources say. It’s not clear if any will meet the $90 million price tag, but Sanchez could sign for more than initially expected because of his performance in the American League, the volume of interest and overall industry health.
