Torii Hunter Plans To Play 2 Or 3 More Years

It appears the signings of Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson has rejuvenated Angels outfielder Torii Hunter, who tells Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles he plans to play 2 or more 3 more seasons.

"I'm just going to keep playing and get it out of my system, because I don't want to go home and be like, 'I've got like two or three years left,'" Hunter said. "I know I've got two or three good years in me. My body's good, my athletic ability is good. I can go out there and play."

Last season, Torii Hunter said he would retire rather than play for another team than the Angels. The 36-year-old Hunter is entering the final year of a five-year, $90 million deal he signed with the Angels when former GM Tony Reagins was making decisions for the team.

"I'll retire an Angel no matter what, whether they give me an extension or whether it's next year," Hunter said at the time. "This is the only place I want to play. I'm not going anywhere."

It'll be interesting to see what happens with Hunter's future, as the club has a couple of younger players ready to take over -you may have heard of one of them, top prospect Mike Trout.
