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.
