Outfielder Torii Hunter has signed a two-year, $26 million contract with the Detroit Tigers.
Hunter has spent the past five seasons with the Los Angeles Angels. He, of course, began his career with the Minnesota Twins.
The 37-year old will provide defense to a Tigers. Despite winning the AL pennant, defense was their Achilles’ heel and Hunter can help fill that void. He also still has a good bat hitting .313 with 16 homeruns and 92 RBI in 2012 with the Angels.
Hunter has never won a World Series ring and signing with the Tigers makes sense. He could be the last piece of the puzzle.
