It appears as though Victor Martinez is ready to sign a four year deal with the Detroit Tigers worth $50 million.

A reporter from Venezuela, Ignacio Serrano, reported the deal on his blog. Serrano also notified his readers that Martinez was offered a four year, $48 million deal by the Baltimore Orioles and a three year, $48 million deal by the Chicago White Sox. 

That means that he’s passing up $16 million a year with the White Sox to be paid $12.5 million a year by the Tigers.

Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal has since confirmed that this deal will happen.

In honor of the new deal, let’s take a look back at Victor Martinez’s stellar career.
