MLB: Torii Hunter, Tigers agree to deal

One of the top free agents on the market, is now off the market. The Detroit Tigers have agreed to a two-year deal with former Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Torii Hunter. The deal is reportedly worth $26 million and is pending a physical.

Despite being 37-years old, Hunter had one of his best offensive seasons last year, batting .313 with 16 home runs and 92 RBIs. The Tigers will not be giving up a draft pick for Hunter, as the Angels did not extend a qualifying offer to the veteran outfielder. Adding Hunter to a potent lineup that already includes the likes of Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder will make the Tigers even more feared in 2013. The club will also get back catcher/first baseman Victor Martinez, who missed all of the 2012 season due to injury.
