Just when you thought the Tigers were done, they bounce back once again for another impactful January singing.  Welcome to the D, Mr. Upton!!

With a rumor that came out of nowhere and the focus on Yoenis Cespedes, Detroit will sign Justin Upton to a 6-year $132.75 million dollar contract.  

The contract will have an opt-out clause reportedly after the 2nd year and includes a partial non-trade clause.  Detroit will undoubtedly be hit with a luxury tax, only determined after the last arbitration case is finished.
