Free agent pitcher Jordan Zimmermann has finalized a five-year contract with the Detroit Tigers.
   Detroit announced the deal Monday, shortly before a news conference at Comerica Park.
   The 29-year-old right-hander went 13-10 with a 3.66 ERA last season for Washington, striking out 164 with 39 walks. The previous year, he went 14-5 with a 2.66 ERA.
   Following four straight AL Central titles, the Tigers finished last this year.
   Detroit will forfeit its second-round pick in June's amateur draft and Washington will gain a compensation selection, No. 38 overall.
   Zimmermann was the first free agent to sign among the 17 with compensation attached.
