Damon is headed to Detroit.
Yankee star Johnny Damon agreed this weekend to a one-year contract with the Detroit Tigers, a deal worth $8 million once Damon completes a physical examination, the player confirmed to the New York Times Saturday night.
The 36-year-old's $52 million, four-year contract with the Yankees expired this year, allowing Damon to become a free agent when the team said it wasn't interested in keeping his salary intact.
Damon last season hit .282, adding 24 home runs and 82 RBIs to a Yankee lineup that won the World Series.
