DETROIT -- Outfielder Curtis Granderson and the Detroit Tigers agreed Monday to a five-year contract that includes a club option for 2013.
The deal is worth $30.25 million, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.
The contract covers Granderson's arbitration-eligible seasons and buys out one season of free agency.
Granderson had a breakout season last year, hitting .302 with 23 homers and 74 RBIs along with 38 doubles, 23 triples and 26 stolen bases.
"We are excited to have Curtis signed to a long-term contract with the Tigers organization," Tigers president Dave Dombrowski said. "Curtis is one of the best young players in the game and a quality individual that represents the Tigers well both on and off the field."
Last season, the 26-year-old Granderson joined Jimmy Rollins, Willie Mays and Frank "Wildfire" Schulte as the only players in major league history with 20 stolen bases, 20 homers, 20 triples and 20 doubles in a single season.
5 yrs for $30.25 mil seems like a bargain for a 26 CF who does everything well. I think he would have gotten a lot more during his arby years.
