Tigers Sign Curtis Granderson to Five Year Deal

The Tigers locked up centerfielder Curtis Granderson to a five year deal today.  While this isn’t unprecedented, giving a long term deal to a guy who isn’t even arbitration eligible is rare but the Tigers felt ponying up $30 million+ (I haven’t seen a final dollar figure, but the rumor is $30.25 million) was worth it after Granderson’s historical season.

There was little doubt that Granderson was not only the centerfielder of the present, but also of the future.  Top prospects Cameron Maybin and Gorkys Hernandez were both dealt this offseason and that just further entrenched Granderson in his role for the forseeable future.
