The $507,500 contract shouldn’t be satisfying enough for Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Doug Fister next season.
Fister, who returned from the 15-day disabled list Monday, is making less money than a majority of the Tigers pitching staff.
He deserves better and should get it next season when his deal expires.
Welcome home, Prince Fielder.
Cecil Fielder’s son, Prince, will join the team his father hit 245 home runs and 758 RBI’s with.
The Detroit Tigers signed Prince to a nine-year, $214 million deal, Tuesday afternoon according to sources.
The Tigers were in search for a designated hitter after catcher/DH Victor Martinez tore his ACL in off-season workouts.

The Detroit Tigers are one of six teams that have expressed interest in Atlanta Braves pitcher Jair Jurrjens according to CBSSports.com
Jurrjens made his MLB debut as a Tiger in 2007, building up a 3-1 record over seven starts. He had a 4.70 ERA before being traded to Atlanta in a deal for shortstop Edgar Renteria.
Since being traded, the right-hander has put up dominant numbers. Jurrjens won 13 or more games in three of his four seasons with the Braves, including a 13-6 campaign last season in which he recorded a 2.96 ERA.
