Detroit Tigers Add Justin Upton To Already Potent Lineup

After watching the division rival Kansas City Royals win it all last year, the Detroit Tigers appear to be loading up for a championship run of their own in 2016. The team has added outfielder Justin Upton to a lineup that already has sluggers Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, and J.D. Martinez. Upton signed a six-year contract that will pay him $132.75 million. Upton played with the San Diego Padres in 2015, where he hit 26 home runs with 81 RBIs. The Tigers have also bolstered their pitching rotation, adding free-agent starters Jordan Zimmermann and Mike Pelfrey. After a disappointing 74–87 record in 2015, the Tigers expect to challenge the Royals in the American League Central.
