Post  Admin on Sat Dec 18, 2010 3:09 am

The Detroit Tigers announced the club has agreed to terms with outfielder Magglio Ordonez on a one-year contract.

Ordonez hit .303 (98x323) with 56 runs scored, 17 doubles, a triple, 12 home runs and 59 RBI in 84 games with the Tigers in 2010 before landing on the disabled list for the remainder of the season on July 25 with a right ankle fracture.

“Magglio is one of the top run producers in baseball and he has been a consistent contributor to our club for the past six seasons,” Tigers President, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager David Dombrowski said. “Magglio’s return solidifies the middle of our lineup and we are excited to keep him in a Tigers uniform.”

Since joining the Tigers in 2005, Ordonez is hitting .318 (905x2842) with 176 doubles, six triples, 102 home runs and 501 RBI in 755 games over the six-season stretch. He is third among all American League players with a .318 batting average during that stretch.

A six-time American League all-star selection (1999-2001, 2003, 2006-07), Ordonez is batting .312 (2072x6649) with 416 doubles, 21 triples, 289 home runs and 1,204 RBI in 1,756 games during his 14-year major league career with the Chicago White Sox (1997-2004) and Tigers (2005-10).

Ordonez is second among all players in major league history from Venezuela with a .312 batting average and 289 home runs, while he is third with 1,204 RBI.

He belted a walk-off, three-run home run in Game Four of the American League Championship Series on October 14, 2006 versus Oakland, becoming the eighth player in major league history to hit a home run to end a post-season series.
