NEW YORK — A person familiar with the negotiations says Prince Fielder and the Detroit Tigers are nearing agreement on a nine-year contract worth about $200 million.

CBS first reported the terms of the deal.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because talks are ongoing. The person says “there are still some things that need to be worked out.”

Detroit, coming off an AL championship series loss to Texas, fills a void left by the knee injury to slugger Victor Martinez.
