Torii Hunter plans to sign in next two weeks

Doug Pensinger

The veteran outfielder plans to be off the market much sooner rather than later.

Veteran outfielder Torii Hunter plans to keep his time on the open market very short, and plans to come to an agreement with a new club in the next two weeks, sources have told Mark Saxon of ESPN:

Free agent outfielder Torii Hunter told MLB Network on Monday morning that he's going to wrap up a decision about where to sign quickly, and a source indicated that the timeframe is about two weeks.

The 37-year-old Hunter is being pursued by several clubs, including the Tigers, Yankees, Red Sox, Rangers and Braves. Scott Miller of CBS Sports goes so far as to say that thirteen or fourteen teams have checked in on the veteran outfielder, and that the Tigers may be the best fit for Hunter.

Hunter has indicated on several occasions that he wants to play for a "contender", which could put him with any one of the five aforementioned clubs. The outfielder was not given a qualifying offer by the Angels so he will not cost his signing team a draft pick.

Hunter had a career year at the dish in 2012, hitting .313/.365/.451 with sixteen home runs in one hundred forty games.
