Torii Hunter signs with Tigers

Outfielder Torii Hunter has agreed to terms with the Tigers for two years and $26 million.

The Red Sox took a look at Hunter. But a 37-year-old player would not see the Red Sox as a desirable destination. And $13 million a year for a 37-year-old player is probably not a road the Sox should be going down.

Ken Rosenthal had the Hunter news while he was on MLB Network.

Cody Ross has to be pretty happy Hunter received $13 million a year.

Hunter last season: .817 OPS, 16 homers, 92 RBIs

Ross last season: .807 OPS, 22 homers, 81 RBIs
