Torii Hunter concludes visit with Tigers with no offer, according to report

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Tigers remain interested in Torii Hunter but did not make an offer after meeting him.

The Detroit Tigers are still seen as the frontrunner for free-agent outfielder Torii Hunter, but they did not make him an offer during his visit to Detroit, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com. Hunter, who lives in the Dallas-area, has also reportedly garnered interest from the Texas Rangers.

In 140 games for the Los Angeles Angels last season, Hunter batted .313/.365/.451 with 16 home runs and 92 runs batted in. Over the course of his five-year, $90 million contract with the Angels, Hunter hit .286/.352/.462 with 105 homers, 432 RBIs and his typically solid outfield defense.

Hunter will be 37 years old when the 2013 season begins, and it's likely that he is in the market for a two- or three-year deal. The Tigers and owner Mike Illitch have been not afraid to spend in free agency as the franchise pursues a World Series, and Hunter would figure to credibly fill one of the outfield spots next to Austin Jackson
