DETROIT (AP) -Outfielder Curtis Granderson and the Detroit Tigers agreed Monday to a five-year contract that includes a club option for 2013.
Granderson had a breakout season last year, hitting .302 with 23 homers and 74 RBIs along with 38 doubles, 23 triples and 26 stolen bases.
``We are excited to have Curtis signed to a long-term contract with the Tigers organization,'' Tigers president Dave Dombrowski said. ``Curtis is one of the best young players in the game and a quality individual that represents the Tigers well both on and off the field.''
