LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Torii Hunter is already living up to his reputation as one of the game's most engaging players.
The Detroit Tigers start full-squad workouts Friday. Hunter was already in the clubhouse a day earlier, laughing it up with ace Justin Verlander as if the two had grown up together. Hunter played 10 seasons with Minnesota and five with the Los Angeles Angels, but he's never been to the World Series. Detroit needed a right fielder, and he signed a two-year deal with the Tigers in November.
Detroit has won two AL Central titles in a row and went to the World Series last year, where the Tigers lost to the San Francisco Giants. Now Hunter joins a clubhouse full of confident stars.
