Torii Hunter may be headed to a new American League contender, but it doesn't look like it will be the Yankees.

Hunter is seeking a two-year deal after a solid 2012 season, but a source said the Yankees don't appear to be inclined to offer more than one. Hunter told MLB Network Monday that he plans to make a decision quickly, not wanting to drag things out into the holidays.

"I'd say there's little shot," the source said, pointing to the Yankees' refusal to offer a two-year deal.

Hunter, who hit .313 with 16 home runs and 92 RBI last season with the Angels, drew immediate interest from the Yankees, but his desire for a multiyear deal at the age of 37 seems to have turned the Yankees in another direction.

The source said the Tigers appear to be the front-runners to sign Hunter, though the Rangers are also making a strong push for the outfielder.

With Nick Swisher seeking a multiyear deal on the free-agent market, the Yankees have a hole to fill in right field. Ichiro Suzuki, another free agent from last season's roster, remains a possibility.

In addition to right field, the Yankees have a vacancy at catcher with Russell Martin testing the free-agent market. Several reports indicated Monday that the Yankees have interest in free agent Mike Napoli, though Martin remains their top choice.
