Tigers tell Torii Hunter they won't pursue his return
The Tigers let Torii Hunter know Friday morning that they wouldn't be pursuing his return to the club.
Re-signing Victor Martinez for four years precluded the return of Hunter, whose two-year contract expired at the end of the season.

Hunter's agent told Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski that the 39-year-old outfielder did indeed want to play, maybe as long as two more years, and that Detroit was his preferred destination.
But with the addition of Anthony Gose in the outfield, moving Rajai Davis back to a corner, the Tigers did not have regular at-bats to give to Hunter.
