      OF Rajai Davis and Tigers agree to 2-year deal

      Outfielder Rajai Davis and the Detroit Tigers have agreed to terms on a two-year contract worth $9-10 million.

      The Tigers announced the deal Wednesday.

      The 33-year-old Davis spent the last three seasons with Toronto and hit .260 this year with six homers, 24 RBIs and 45 steals in 331 at-bats. He made $2.5 million.

      He gives the Tigers a speedy presence that the team has been lacking. The Tigers stole just 35 bases last season, fewest in the major leagues.

      An eight-year major league veteran, Davis has 268 career stolen bases. He also has played for Pittsburgh (2006-07), San Francisco (2007-08) and Oakland (2008-10).

      The right-handed swinging Davis would join an outfield with Austin Jackson and Torii Hunter. He could platoon with lefty Andy Dirks.
