Free agent outfielder Torii Hunter has indicated he would like to sign a contract within the next two weeks, ESPN's Mark Saxon reported Monday. And the race for Hunter could come down to three teams: the Los Angeles Dodgers, Detroit Tigers or New York Yankees.

Saxon reported that the Tigers would be the best fit for Hunter:

The most aggressive pursuer thus far has been the Detroit Tigers, the team most likely to offer Hunter a two-year deal, a shot at his first World Series and an everyday job.

On Sunday, Saxon reported that the Dodgers and Hunter had been involved in contract talks and that the Dodgers could also potentially give Hunter a two-year contract. But the Dodgers already have a jam-packed outfield if they do not trade Andre Ethier.

The 37-year-old Hunter, a nine-time Gold Glove recipient, had a rebound season last year, batting .313 with an .816 OPS. Hunter has reportedly also been in discussions with the Boston Red Sox, Seattle Mariners and Philadelphia Phillies.
