LAKELAND, FL (WTVB) - Detroit is locking up star slugger Miguel Cabrera for a long time. The Tigers haven’t yet officially made the announcement, but various media reported Thursday that the two sides have agreed to a 10-year, $292-million deal. There are also vesting options for an 11th and 12th season worth $30-million each that could push the contract to $352-million. The soon-to-be 31-year-old is currently in the midst of an eight-year, $152 million pact that expires after 2015.

Cabrera is the two-time reigning American League MVP and has won three straight batting titles. In Grapefruit League action yesterday in Lakeland, Cabrera belted a three-run homer to help lift the Tigers to a 9-3 win over the Atlanta Braves. Detroit starter Max Scherzer gave up a pair of home runs and struck out six in 6-and-two thirds innings of work.

The Tigers host Tampa Bay this afternoon and then head north for a final exhibition game tomorrow afternoon in Washington against the Nationals. Detroit starts the season Monday afternoon at home against the Kansas City Royals.
