Prince, Tigers reach nine-year deal
Powerful free-agent first baseman agrees to $214 million contract
DETROIT -- The Tigers spent a week reacting to Victor Martinez's season-ending left knee injury. Their eventual reaction was big enough to be worthy of a Prince.
After supposedly looking for a short-term solution to the void in the middle of their order, the Tigers went big, physically and financially, with All-Star slugger Prince Fielder. On Tuesday, the two sides agreed to terms on a nine-year contract worth $214 million. that's good IAN.
