LAKELAND, Fla. — Miguel Cabrera’s bid to become one of the greatest hitters of all time apparently will take place in a Detroit Tigers uniform.

CBS Sports first reported Thursday that the Tigers and Cabrera have agreed to a long-term extension that will keep him with the club at least through 2021, if not longer.

Fox Sports reports the extension is for 8 years and $248 million ($31 million per year), the second deal in baseball history worth at least $30 million per season. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, one year from free agency, signed a long-term deal for $30.7 million per season.

That would put Cabrera’s total contract at 10 years, $292 million (through 2023), according to Fox Sports. That would pass Alex Rodriguez for the largest lucrative contract in baseball history, by total value.

The 100+ million extensions don't exactly have the best track record, although I suppose Trout's will test that.

I'm kinda bummed right now, as the Diamondbacks still seemed to be in the .500ish range to me before the news about Corbin and now Hernandez possibly needing TJ surgery hit.
