DETROIT – The Detroit Tigers today announced the club has agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension with shortstop Carlos Guillen, keeping him in a Tigers uniform through the 2011 season.
 
Guillen batted .320 (174×543) with 100 runs scored, 41 doubles, five triples, 19 home runs and 85 RBI in 153 games with the Tigers in 2006.  Selected the Tiger of the Year by Detroit’s chapter of the BBWAA, he finished eighth in the American League with a .400 on-base percentage, ninth with a .320 batting average and tied for ninth with 41 doubles.
