With Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera in the middle of the lineup, the Detroit Tigers look ready for a season of slugging at Comerica Park.
The Detroit Tigers responded to a jarring injury with an audacious move.
The mystery team pulled off another coup. Free agent first baseman Prince Fielder didn't choose Washington or Texas or any of the other rumored favorites for the left-handed hitting slugger. Instead it was Detroit.
"He's been there in Detroit most of his young life so I think he'll be comfortable in that place," Cecil Fielder said. "I know Mr. Ilitch is probably excited because he's been wanting that kid since he was a little kid, so he finally got his wish."
In an interview with MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM, Cecil Fielder said he was "shocked" by the news that Prince was heading to Detroit.
