2012 The Tigers announce that Victor Martinez (.330, 12, 103) will most likely miss next season due to the tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while he was working out last week. The anticipated absence of the 33 year-old DH, a four-time All-Star, will lead Detroit to sign free-agent Prince Fielder to a nine-year mega-deal worth $214 million.
2014 The Tigers come to terms with Max Scherzer on a one-year contract for $15,525,000, avoiding arbitration with the 29 year-old right-hander, who will be eligible for free agency after next season. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner posted a 21-3 record last season along with a 2.90 ERA and 240 strikeouts, before earning two victories in the ALDS against Oakland for the AL Central Division champs.
