Reports: Torii Hunter meets with Detroit Tigers

DETROIT - Free agent outfielder Torii Hunter is spending Tuesday meeting with the Detroit Tigers, according to reports.

The Tigers are reported to be the front-runners for the 37-year old's services.

Hunter told the MLB Network Monday he expects to sign with his new team quickly, giving a timeline of two weeks before he makes a decision.

Last year, the nine-time Gold Glove winner hit .313 with 16 home runs and 92 RBI with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He played in 140 games.

Signing Hunter would solidify one of Detroit's corner outfield positions, an area where the team struggled to find consistency last season.

Brennan Boesch, Ryan Raburn, Andy Dirks, and Quintin Berry all mixed in as starters throughout the 2012 campaign.

Throughout his 15-year career, Hunter has a batting average of .277 with 297 home runs and 1143 RBI.
