Tigers, Davis nearing 2-year deal
The Tigers are nearing a two-year deal with outfielder Rajai Davis, according to Fox Sports’ Jon Paul Morosi.
Davis, 33, hits right handed and figures to slide into left field, where he will share time with incumbent Andy Dirks, a left-handed hitter.
Davis spent the past three years with the Blue Jays and adds athleticism to the Tigers’ lineup. He’s stolen more than 40 bases in four of the last five years and has 268 in his career.
He is a .268 career hitter over an eight-year career with the Pirates, Giants, A’s and Jays.
This likely takes the TIgers out of the running for free-agent outfielder Shin-Soo Choo.
