Dave Dombrowski says Tigers haven't made any multi-year offers to outfielders

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Despite earlier reports, Detroit hasn't offered a contract to Scott Hairston.

Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said the team has not made any multi-year contract offers to any outfielder, according to Jason Beck of MLB.com.

Dombrowski's statement came shortly after Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reported that the Tigers had offered outfielder Scott Hairston a two-year contract.

Dombrowski said Avisail Garcia has the opportunity to win a job in the outfield out of spring training, according to Ricky Lindsay of the Michigan Journal.

Hairston, 32, is coming off his best power-hitting season of his career. In 134 games for the Mets, Hairston hit 20 home runs with a slash line of .263/.299/.504. His .803 OPS was the best mark of his nine-year career. Playing in 134 games, too, was a career high.

Garcia, 21, made his MLB debut with the Tigers last season. In 51 plate appearances, Garcia batted .319 with a .373 on-base percentage. He finished with three RBIs, three walks and 10 strikeouts.
