Tigers finalize deal with OF Torii Hunter

  •  

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Tigers have finalized their $26 million, two-year deal with outfielder Torii Hunter.

Hunter hit a career-best .313 last season for the Los Angeles Angels with 16 home runs and 92 RBIs. Acquiring a corner outfielder was a major offseason priority for Detroit, and Hunter won nine consecutive Gold Gloves from 2001-09 before gradually switching from center field to right.

General manager Dave Dombrowski says in a statement that Hunter will be a "tremendous addition to the Tigers' organization both on and off the field."

Detroit is chasing its first World Series title since 1984. The Tigers won the AL pennant last season but were swept by San Francisco in the World Series.
