TinCaps

  • TinCaps smash their way to win
    Manager Michael Collins didn’t want his batters to think about the long ball this season.Yet this year’s TinCaps hit more than any team in Fort Wayne history.
  • Playoffs look more remote
    Miscues like Monday’s are the ones the TinCaps will kick themselves over if they miss the playoffs, which is looking more and more like a reality.
  • A much-needed win
    Cody Hebner fits all the conceived notions of a laid-back West Coast person. The TinCaps right-hander has blond locks flowing down the back of his neck, tattoos and a self-described mentality of “take it as it goes.

Ex-Wizard Hunter has deal with Tigers, source says

DETROIT – A person with knowledge of the negotiations says free agent outfielder Torii Hunter has agreed to a two-year deal with the Detroit Tigers.

The person, who spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made, says the deal is pending a physical.

The 37-year-old Hunter hit a career-best .313 last season for the Los Angeles Angels. He’ll be able to fill a corner outfield spot for the AL champion Tigers, taking care of a major offseason priority for Detroit.

Hunter hit 16 home runs and had 92 RBIs in 2012. He could also help the Tigers improve their defense as they chase their first World Series title since 1984. Detroit was swept by San Francisco in this year’s series.
