The Detroit Tigers and third baseman Miguel Cabrera have agreed on a massive contract extension that likely will keep the two-time defending American League MVP award winner in the Motor City for the remainder of his career.

Cabrera, 30, is considered by many the best player in baseball, although some would say Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout is a better all-around player.
The Tigers superstar batted .348 with 44 home runs and 137 RBIs in 144 games last season. He also scored 103 runs, tallied 193 hits and had an incredible .442 on-base percentage.
Cabrera also helped lead the Tigers to the ALCS in 2013, where they lost in six games to the eventual World Series champion Boston Red Sox.
In 2012, Cabrera became the first Triple Crown winner in the American League since 1967.
