As if Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera was not enough, the Tigers where set to get back DH/C Victor Martinez for the 2013 season. And now there is this.

Sources say the defending American League Champions, added veteran outfielder Torii Hunter to their already scary lineup Wednesday. The deal is expected to be worth 26 million dollars, over a two year period.

Hunter is coming off a strong 2012 campaign with the Los Angeles Angels in which the 37 year-old hit a career high .316, with 16 home-runs and 92 RBI’s.

Hunter returns to the AL Central after spending five seasons in the AL West with the Los Angeles Angels. Prior to that he had spent nine seasons with the Minnesota Twins, making his name as a five-tool outfielder.
