Miguel Cabrera is on the verge of signing a new deal with the Detroit Tigers in what would be a huge coup for the ball club ahead of the start of the MLB season.
The Tigers start their season against the Kansas City Royals Monday in their MLB opener ahead four games in five days, and this potential extension is the perfect spark for the players and fans in equal measure.
Not that the ball club's needs any extra momentum heading into what should be a successful season for the franchise.
With the majority of bookmakers, they are ranked as second-favorites in the race for the World Series.
Nonetheless the move could be huge for the Tigers, with baseball insider Jon Morosi providing the information.
"New deal for Tigers and Cabrera, if completed, will go through at least 2021 and possibly longer than that," Morosi posted on Twitter.
Nothing could be better for the Tigers than an in-form Cabrera heading into the season.
And one of the ways they can guarantee that is by making him happy, and one way you can make that happen is to give the big batter a massive new deal.
Good move by the Tigers it certainly is.
