Tigers Sign Miguel Cabrera and Bobby Seay

Once again, the Tigers avoided going to the arbitration table as they signed their arbitration eligible players.  The big signing was a one year (yes, I the bet with myself when I said they’d sign a five year deal) contract for third baseman Miguel Cabrera.  The Tigers will pay him $11.3 million.  They must have thought with another year (Cabrera can’t file for free agency until after the 2009 season) that they could put off a longer term deal.  Still, $11.3 million is one of the healthier deals for a player two seasons away from free agency.

The Tigers also signed Bobby Seay but I couldn’t open the press release to see how much they signed him for.  Seay will join Tim Byrdak as left handers coming out of the pen in 2008.

Seay got $780,000…good value for us if he can pitch like he did last year.
