NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have completed an $11 million, two-year contract with reliever Mark Lowe, adding a setup man for new closer Francisco Rodriguez.

A 32-year-old right-hander, Lowe was 1-3 with a 1.96 ERA for Seattle and Toronto this year, striking out 61 in 55 innings. He did not allow a run in 49 of 57 appearances.

Tigers general manager Al Avila says "Mark solidifies the back end of our bullpen."

Lowe is 9-24 with a 3.80 ERA and six saves in 10 big league seasons, also pitching for the Seattle Mariners (2006-10), Texas (2010-12), the Los Angeles Angels (2013) and Cleveland (2014).

He gets $5.5 million a year with the Tigers.
