The Detroit Tigers and free agent starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann have agreed to terms on a five-year contract, the team announced Monday.

The deal is expected to be worth around $110 million, according to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports.

Zimmermann, 29, has a career 3.32 ERA in seven seasons with the Washington Nationals. In 2015, he went 13–10 with a 3.66 ERA in 201 2/3 innings.

The two-time All Star rejected a qualifying offer from Washington, so the Tigers will forfeit a pick in this year’s upcoming MLB draft as a result. Since their first pick, the ninth overall, is protected, they will lose their second draft choice.

First-year general manager Al Avila has also added closer Francisco Rodriguez and outfielder Cameron Maybin in a pair of trades this offseason.
