The Tigers have announced the move we’ve all been waiting for, a Justin Verlander extension, and it’s huge. Sources have indicated the deal is worth up to $202m, with a base salary of $180m over the next 7 seasons, with a $22m option in 2020.
This is big news, guys. How will the Tigers afford this? Cabrera will need to be extended soon, as will Scherzer and others. Who goes?
How does this move sit with you guys? Let us know in the comments!
