    Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Tigers and Torii Hunter have agreed to a two-year contract, pending a physical.
    Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the deal is worth $26 million. Hunter said earlier this week that he planned to make a decision about his future quickly and he stayed true to his word, ultimately settling on the Tigers after meeting with the team in Detroit on Tuesday. The 37-year-old batted .313/.365/.451 with 16 home runs, 92 RBI, nine stolen bases and an .817 OPS this season and should be the everyday right fielder for the Tigers in 2013.

    We're not done but love this signing. Still have a feeling we add a pretty big bat sometime this off season.

    It turned out Torii chose Tigers as much as they chose him. Told other teams he wasn't interested in talking unless Tigers didn't work out.

    Also, Torii set up Tuesday visit to Detroit himself. Told Tigers he wanted to come up. Obviously, they were happy to see him.

    So happy!! I think this was the right thing for DD to do. Perfect fit, he's gonna upgrade us tremendously in the outfield as well as at the plate. Not to mention, he's a great clubhouse presence and his mentoring of our young outfield is going to prove invaluable for years to come.

    Love this move. Always helps to have a veteran leader who knows how to play the game the right way. In the field and on the base paths our younger players better be watching this guy and how he handles himself. That alone is priceless for our younger guys. Now watch and take a lot of mental notes please. This guy is a leader.
