Per Bob Nightengale, Justin Upton has signed a deal in principle with the Detroit Tigers, six years for $132.75 million dollars with an opt-out option after two years. The deal is pending Upton passing a physical.
Upton is now the third highest-paid free-agent position player this winter behind Jason Heyward (eight years, $184 million with Chicago) and Chris Davis (seven years, $161 million, Orioles).
JUp hit .251 with 26 home runs and 81 RBIs with the Padres last year. He has a .271 average and 190 home runs in nine seasons split among the Diamondbacks, Braves, and Padres.
