Top Tigers News

  • Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Rejoins Detroit

    Boyd agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with the Tigers on Thursday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The left-hander spent most of 2022 recovering from the flexor tendon surgery he underwent in September of the previous year, but he returned as a reliever for the final month of the campaign in Seattle and had a 1.35 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 13:8 K:BB over 13.1 innings. Boyd will now return to Detroit, where he spent the prior six-plus seasons. He was pitching well in 2021 prior to the injury with a 3.89 ERA across 15 starts, and a return to that form would be a major boost to the Tigers' starting rotation.

  • Tigers' Miguel Diaz: Returns to Detroit on minors deal

    Diaz signed a minor-league deal with Detroit on Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The Tigers designated Diaz for assignment in mid-November and subsequently non-tendered him, but he'll still have a role with the team as organizational depth. The 28-year-old righty only threw 3.2 major-league innings last season and recorded an unremarkable 4.29 ERA in 65 innings at the Triple-A level.

  • Tigers' Michael Papierski: Returns to Tigers

    Papierski re-signed with Detroit on a minor-league deal Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Papierski was designated for assignment and non-tendered by the Tigers in mid-November. While the organization didn't see a major-league role for him, it evidently likes him enough to bring him back as a depth option. He didn't look like he deserved anything else in his 39-game MLB debut last year, hitting .143/.228/.187.

  • Tigers' Brendon Davis: Back with Tigers on minors deal

    Davis returned to the Tigers on a minor-league contract Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Davis made his big-league debut last season, appearing in three games late in the year. He was designated for assignment and non-tendered in mid-November but will return to the Tigers in an organizational depth role.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Plans to retire after 2023 season

    Cabrera said Monday in an interview with MLB.com that he plans to retire after the 2023 season. "I think it's going to be my last year," he said. "It feels a little weird to say that. I thought I wasn't going to say that ever. But I think it's time to say goodbye to baseball."

    Considering that Cabrera will be due $32 million for 2023 -- the final year of the $248 million contract extension he inked in March 2014 -- his decision to play one final season comes as little surprise. The 39-year-old had already moved into more of a part-time role at designated hitter by the second half of the 2022 campaign, and Tigers manager A.J. Hinch previously said earlier this month that he doesn't envision Cabrera playing on an everyday basis during the final season of his Hall of Fame-worthy career, per Evan Woodbery of MLive.com. Cabrera still hit a respectable .254 in 433 plate appearances in 2022, but his walk rate (6.6 percent) and ISO (.063) both plummeted to career-worst levels.

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: Reaches deal to avoid arbitration

    Meadows agreed to a one-year contract with the Tigers on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

    Detroit will keep Meadows around at north of $4 million in 2023. Meadows appeared in just 36 games last season around mental health struggles and injuries, finishing the year on the IL with strains to both of his Achilles' tendons. He should have a normal offseason and the expectation is that Meadows will be the starter in either right field or left on Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Avoids arbitration

    Alexander agreed to a one-year, $1.875 million contract with the Tigers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Alexander has found his niche at the major-league level as a swingman, starting 42 games and pitching in relief in 53 others over the past four seasons. He turned in a 4.81 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 101 innings in 2022 -- a step back from 2021, but still serviceable. The southpaw should be expected to get close to the century mark in terms of innings again in 2023.

  • Tigers' Bligh Madris: Claimed by Detroit

    The Tigers claimed Madris off waivers from the Rays on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Madris tried his best to make a name for himself during his brief time in the Rays organization (1.053 OPS, four homers in 10 games with Triple-A Durham), but it wasn't enough. The Tigers have decided to take a chance and will add Madris to the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old infielder figures to compete for a utility role in spring training.

  • Tigers' Steele Walker: Traded to Detroit

    Walker was acquired by the Tigers from the Giants on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations.

    Walker was claimed off waivers by San Francisco in August and spent the rest of the campaign at Triple-A Sacramento. The 26-year-old played in five games for Texas earlier in the season but spent most of his time at the Triple-A level and had a .754 OPS in 309 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Sean Guenther: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Guenther (elbow) cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

    The 27-year-old finished the season on Detroit's 60-day injured list but won't be added back to the 40-man roster for the offseason. Guenther underwent Tommy John surgery in April and is likely to miss at least the first half of the 2023 campaign.

  • Tigers' Brendon Davis: DFA'd by Detroit

    Davis was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Davis was promoted for his big-league debut at the end of the season and went 2-for-10 with a walk, two runs and a stolen base in three games. The 25-year-old spent most of 2022 at Triple-A Toledo and had a .232/.342/.409 slash line in 103 contests.

  • Tigers' Michael Papierski: DFA'd by Detroit

    Papierski was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Tuesday.

    The 26-year-old was claimed off waivers by Detroit in October, but he won't retain his spot on the 40-man roster. Papierski played in 39 games between the Reds and Giants in 2022 and had a .143/.228/.187 slash line in 103 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Kyle Funkhouser: Designated for assignment

    Funkhouser (shoulder) was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Tuesday.

    The right-hander was sidelined for the entirety of 2022 with a shoulder injury, which eventually required surgery in July. The 28-year-old has yet to resume throwing, so the Tigers opted not to carry him on the 40-man roster through the offseason.

  • Tigers' Miguel Diaz: DFA'd by Detroit

    Diaz was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Tuesday.

    The 27-year-old was called up to the majors for the final week of the season but won't retain his spot on the MLB roster. Diaz spent the rest of the campaign at Triple-A Toledo and had a 4.71 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 69:30 K:BB across 65 innings.

  • Tigers' Brendan White: Joins 40-man roster

    White was added to Detroit's 40-man roster Tuesday.

    White spent 2022 at Double-A Erie and had a 2.67 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 73:17 K:BB across 67.1 innings. The Tigers added him to the 40-man roster in order to protect him from the upcoming Rule 5 draft.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Perez was added to the Tigers' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Detroit added Perez to the 40-man roster in order to protect him from being selected during the upcoming Rule 5 draft. The 23-year-old split 2022 between High-A West Michigan and Double-A Erie, and he posted a .903 OPS with 14 home runs and 18 steals between the two levels.
