Tigers To Sign Prince Fielder

By Ben Nicholson-Smith [January 24, 2012 at 2:02pm CST]

The Tigers have agreed to sign Prince Fielder to a nine-year, $214MM contract Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports on Twitter. The agreement will keep Fielder in the Motor City through his age 36 season for an average annual value of $23.78MM.

The 27-year-old first baseman will join Miguel Cabrera in the middle of the Tigers' order to create more than enough offense to make up for the loss of Victor Martinez.

Though the market for Fielder seemed far from robust at times this offseason agent Scott Boras has found an unexpected suitor once again. Yahoo's Tim Brown first reported that the sides were close to a deal.

I don't even know whatto say right now!

Make a go for this year and if it doesnt work trade Miggy for a ransom?

Maybe there was more to the drunk driving stuff than we thought.

Seems that way, now. Didn't realize that before. Cabby to LF?

For this season, I think they alternate 1B and DH between Fielder and Cabrera, and slowly break Cabrera in at third for a handful of games. Then by 2013, Cabrera is somewhat ready to play there full time.

I suppose they could do that for LF as well. I'm assuming this means we probably don't sign Cespedes.
