Tigers sign Hunter – Verlander misses Cy Young

Published on November 15, 2012 by   ·   No Comments

The Detroit Tigers signed veteran outfielder Torii Hunter to a two-year deal worth $26 (M) million dollars yesterday.

The 37-year old Hunter, who is a nine-time Gold Glove Award winner, batted .313 with 16 home runs and 92 RBIs last season with the Angels.

The move gives Detroit a veteran outfielder, a solid number-two hitter in front of Miguel Cabrera, and vocal leader in the clubhouse.

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander came up short in his bid for a second consecutive AL Cy Young Award.

Tampa Bay Rays left-hander David Price took the honor instead, in the second closest finish in Cy Young history.

Price finished with 153 points, while Verlander earned 149 points.

Price went 20-and-5 with an AL-leading 2.56 ERA.

R.A. Dickey won the award in the National League.
