DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers have agreed to a contract with a Taiwanese pitcher who played for his national team at the Beijing Olympics.
The Tigers said Tuesday that 26-year-old left-hander Fu-Te Ni (FOO'-tay-nee) will attend spring training in Lakeland, Fla., as a nonroster invitee.
Ni has spent the past two seasons pitching for the China Trust Whales in the Chinese Professional Baseball League. In 2008, he had a 5-12 record, 3.34 ERA and league-leading 132 strikeouts in more than 145 innings.
