Description: Tigers right fielder Torii Hunter indicated Wednesday he is leaning towards playing again in 2015 according to MLive.com.
Insight: The 39-year-old seemed to be leaning towards retirement after the the Orioles swept the Tigers in the ALDS, but he is now leaning the other way. Hunter has not made his final decision. He is a free agent, but we expect him to stay in Detroit if he wants to play.
