DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers today announced the club has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with righthanded pitcher Todd Jones.

Jones pitched the 2005 season with the Florida Marlins, compiling a 1-5 record, 2.10 ERA (73.0IP/17ER) and 40 saves in 68 appearances. He finished fourth in the National League with 40 saves and fifth among all league relievers with 1.73 walks per nine innings pitched. Jones fanned 62 batters during the season, while limiting the opposition to 61 hits, 14 walks and a .230 batting average against (61x265).

"Todd is a quality relief pitcher who had a tremendous season in 2005," Tigers President, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager David Dombrowski said. "He adds a veteran presence to our bullpen and is the type of individual the organization was looking to fill this role."

A veteran of 13 seasons at the major league level with the Houston Astros (1993-96), Tigers (1997-2001), Minnesota Twins (2001), Colorado Rockies (2002-03), Boston Red Sox (2003), Cincinnati Reds (2004), Philadelphia Phillies (2004) and Marlins (2005), Jones has compiled a 51-52 record, 3.91 ERA (905.0IP/393ER) and 226 saves during his career.

Jones is currently 10th among all active major league pitchers with 226 saves, including the Tigers single-season franchise record of 42 saves during the 2000 season. He enters the 2006 season second among all pitchers in Tigers history with 142 saves, 12 shy of matching Mike Henneman for the club record.
