|Torii Hunter sustains bruises, but shouldn't miss time |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(10/14/13) Tigers right fielder Torii Hunter came close to robbing David Ortiz of his game-tying grand slam in Sunday's Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, but all he got for his troubles were some bruises on his side and a scratch on the back of his head. Hunter flipped over the outfield wall trying to haul in Ortiz's shot, but despite getting banged up, he remained in the game.
Hunter is expected to be in the starting lineup for Game 3 against the Red Sox on Tuesday.
|Torii Hunter wants to play past 2014 |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(10/11/13) Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter told MLB.com Friday that he remains confident he'll continue to play after the 2014 season.
"No, it won't be. It won't be," Hunter said. "I want to play past that contract."
The 38-year-old signed a two-year, $26 million deal with Detroit last offseason and finished this year with a .304 batting average, 17 home runs and 84 RBI over 606 at-bats. He's played 140-plus games in each of his last four seasons.
"I try to keep myself in shape," Hunter said. "I work out, I get myself prepared, I'm a lot smarter at the plate, I'm a lot smarter playing in the field. When you're younger, you just go out and you play, you go wild. But now I study, I look at percentages, I look at different things like that and prepare myself for the test so I won't fail. I eat right, I sprint, I still keep my fast-twitch muscles. I do everything I can to prepare myself for the game that day."
|Torii Hunter strikes out three times in Game 4 |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(10/8/13) Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter had an uneventful night at the plate in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Athletics at Comerica Park.
Hunter, who jammed his shoulder in Game 3, remained in the starting lineup but failed to come through with a hit. He struck out three times and finished 0 for 4 in an 8-6 victory. He is hitting .143 (2 for 14) in the postseason.
|Torii Hunter jams shoulder Monday |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(10/7/13) Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter jammed his shoulder early in Monday's Game 3 loss of the American League Division Series against Oakland, USA Today reports. That said, Hunter played the full game and injury is not considered serious.
Hunter underwent X-rays after the game, which came back negative on his left shoulder. He expects to be in the lineup for Game 4.
The right fielder and No. 2 hitter for the Tigers went 1 for 3 Monday with a walk and a run scored. He also grounded into a double play. He is hitting .200 thus far in the ALDS.
|As Torii Hunter inches towards 40 -- an age he will reach during the 2015 season -- he continues to surprise Fantasy owners by sustaining his value. He hit over .300 for the second straight season, representing the only two times he has reached that benchmark in his career, and last season he notched 37 doubles for the Tigers, tying his second-highest total ever. Over the last two years, Hunter has been more aggressive and has also hit fewer flyballs, effectively sacrificing 20-homer power for a higher batting average. It's worked well enough to make him a top 20 outfielder in Rotisserie the last two years, though a lack of doubles and walks kept Hunter out of the top 30 in standard Head-to-Head leagues in 2012. Hunter has been highly reliant on healthy batting averages on ground balls to build his value, and it's only a matter of time before that foundation crumbles. Hunter is still viable as a mid-round option in Rotisserie leagues and a late-rounder in Head-to-Head leagues, but it's probably too much to expect for him to rank as a top 30 outfielder again this year.
