Outfielder Torii Hunter will begin his 15th season in the pros with Detroit in 2013.
ESPN reports Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter (Pine Bluff) has reached an agreement with the Detroit Tigers on a new, two-year contract worth $26 million.
He hit .313 with the Angels in 2012, but his five-year, $90 million contract expired after the season, and the Angels declined to make him a $13.3 million qualifying offer.
That means the Tigers are not obligated to give the Angels draft-pick compensation in exchange for signing Hunter.
Hunter, entering his 17th season, is a career .277 hitter with nine Gold Gloves. He saw his first big league action with Minnesota in 1997 and signed with the Angels as a free agent before the 2008 season.
