According to reports, former Detroit Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez has signed a 2-year, $19 million deal with the Washington Nationals.

Most thought Sanchez’s career was coming to an end when he posted a 6.41 ERA in 28 games with the Tigers in 2017. He proved everyone wrong in 2018 by going 7-6 with a 2.83 ERA, which ties for the second lowest of his 13 year MLB career.

Michigan Wolverines’ National Signing Day recap

Jim Harbaugh and the University of Michigan football coaching staff had a very productive national signing day run. On the first day of the early signing period, the Wolverines were able to fill up almost their entire 2019 Freshman class inking commitments with 25 recruits.

The day was marked by the biggest surprise, maybe in the country, when Daxton Hill decided to send his letter of intent to Michigan. Only 11 days ago, Daxton flipped his commitment to Michigan to Alabama, but today that all changed. Hill is a five-star safety from Oklahoma with a great pedigree. He is the younger brother of Justice Hill, the Oklahoma State running back that just declared for the NFL draft.

Other notable commitments include Zach Charbonnet (RB) and Chris Hinton (DL). Both are in the top 100 nationally and are part of a trio that should be the backbone of this 2019 class. The other major commit was Cornelius Johnson, a top 250 player that, as a wide receiver, is viewed to be the missing piece at a position that Michigan has struggled to fill in its run-heavy offense.

As it stands now, Michigan has the top-ranked recruiting class in the B1G according to multiple sources and are ranked 7th nationally according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
