Johnny Damon, Tigers Agree on Deal

Johnny Damon on Monday Night Raw (wwe.com).

Former Sox and Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon has finally signed with a major league team, inking a one-year, $8 million deal. Other teams with serious interest were the Rays, Braves, and White Sox, but the Tigers were thought to be the only club to give Damon a guaranteed deal. Other contract offers included incentive-clauses that would have brought a contract close to $8 million.

Damon will fill the void left by the traded Curtis Granderson, who will now roam the outfield for the Yankees. The Yanks had no room for Damon (after signing Randy Winn, Marcus Thames, and Nick Johnson) and kept reducing their offer to the 36-year-old claiming payroll constraints. Even the Yankees run out of money!

Johnny hit .282 with 24 HRs and 82 RBIs last season for the Yankees.
