Tigers tell Hunter they won't re-sign him



2017-11-15

Torii Hunter's days with the Detroit Tigers are over.

The 39-year-old free agent was hoping to return to the team he's called home for the last two seasons, but Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski put an end to any chance of that on Friday, according to MLB.com's Jason Beck.
Last week, it was reported by Fox Sports that the Giants were one of six teams showing "preliminary interest" in the nine-time Gold Glove winner.
Hunter hit .286 with 33 doubles, 17 home runs and 83 RBI in 142 games in 2017. He earned $14 million this past season.

On Wednesday, the Tigers acquired center fielder Anthony Gose from the Blue Jays in exchange for second base prospect Devon Travis.
