The 35-year-old signed a three-year deal with the Tigers after spending five seasons in with the Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox.

Fukudome gave up plans to return the majors after being released by the New York Yankees' Triple-A affiliate Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at the end of the 2012 season.

Before signing with the Cubs in 2008, Fukudome was a key player for the Chunichi Dragons and was named the Central League Most Valuable Player in 2006.

The Tigers have also signed former Minnesota Twins infielder Tsuyoshi Nishioka, who struggled in two seasons with the American League team.
