Báez gets $140M birthday present, closes deal with Tigers

DETROIT (AP) Javier Baez hopes he's a big part of a turnaround with the Detroit Tigers, too.

Baez celebrated his 29th birthday Wednesday by signing a $140 million, six-year contact to play shortstop for the revitalized Tigers.

"This is a turning point for the Tigers undoubtedly, signing a player like Javy. I think sends a message to the baseball world, to our fans, that the Tigers are here to compete," CEO Christopher Ilitch said.
