DETROIT, MI - The Detroit Tigers and free agent outfielder Torii Hunter agreed on Friday to a two-year contract through the 2014 season.

Financial terms of the deal were not released, but it is reported to be worth $26 million.

The 16-year veteran batted a career-high .313 with 24 doubles, 16 home runs and 92 RBI through 140 games for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim last season.

"Torii Hunter is a quality major league player who is a tremendous addition to the Tigers organization both on and off the field," Tigers president, chief executive officer and general manager David Dombrowski said. "He continues to be a consistent contributor at the plate, in the outfield and on bases, and we feel Torii is a great fit for our lineup."

A nine-time Gold Glove winner and four-time All Star, Hunter is a career .277 hitter with 406 doubles, 297 homers and 1,143 RBI over 1,947 games with the Minnesota Twins (1997-2007) and Angels (2008-12).
