According to LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, free agent outfielder Torii Hunter hopes to sign with a team prior to next week’s Winter Meetings.

Mark Whicker of Los Angeles News Group reported over the weekend that Hunter is considering the Orioles, Rangers, and Mariners as well as a potential reunion with the Twins. However, one wonders whether we can scratch the Mariners off that list now that they have reportedly agreed to terms with Nelson Cruz on a four-year, $58 million contract.

Hunter, 39, batted .286/.319/.446 with 17 home runs and 83 RBI this season with the Tigers. He’s likely looking at a one- or two-year deal.
