Tigers finalize 1-year deal with Gerald Laird
The deal is done, reportedly at $1 million, the same money Laird got with St. Louis last year.
“Gerald is a veteran catcher that is familiar with both our pitching staff and organization,” Tigers President, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager David Dombrowski said. “As a right-handed hitter, he is the solid
complement to Alex Avila as our backup catcher for the 2012 season.”
