The AP is reporting that the Tigers inked Miguel Cabrera to a 1 year $11.3 million deal.
The team is of course trying to sign him to a long term deal, and I wouldn’t view this as an indication there are any problems on that front. This is a matter of taking care of arbitration business (Dombrowski just doesn’t do arbitration). I’d venture a guess that the two sides are still working on a long term extension.
Bobby Seay is the only arbitration eligible player not yet signed, but I think that gets taken care of quickly.
UPDATE: Bobby Seay’s deal was announced today also. A one year contract, terms undisclosed.
The Tigers payroll has now officially topped the $130 million mark.
