Slugger signs 4-year $72 million deal
Former Toledo Flame Thrower masher Curt Thurman took the money and ran east. The free agent left fielder has left Toledo to sign a 4-year $72 million deal with the Hartford Minutemen which includes a $2 million signing bonus.
The 31-year-old 4-time All-Star is fourth on Camp's career homerun list with 450 career dingers. In his final season with Toledo last year he hit .281 with 42 homeruns and 128 RBIs. He joins a powerful lineup in Hartford that already includes sluggers Raymond Purcell, Terrence Malone, Ron Turner, Dewayne Long and Edgar Paniagua.
