BREAKING: Detroit Tigers sign 3 position players and a pitcher

For Detroit Tigers fans, winter is officially here. The cold air is abundant and we have already had the first big snowfall of the season. Though baseball is pretty much on a hold in the Midwest (other than indoor facilities), that does not mean Tigers general manager Al Avila is not working hard to prepare for the future.

On Thursday, the Tigers announced the signing of four players, including LHP Will Lamb, INF Ronny Rodriguez, and OFs Jason Krizan and Kenny Wilson.

All four players have been signed to minor league contracts and both Krizan and Rodriguez have been invited to Major League Spring Training camp.

Lamb, who was originally drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 2nd Round of the 2011 MLB Draft, has never made his way to the Major Leagues. In seven seasons of minor league baseball, he is 27-23 with a 4.20 ERA in 244 games pitched (37 starts). In 2017, Lamb posted a 5.27 ERA in 36 games.

Rodriguez, who is 25-years-old, has spent his entire professional career in the Cleveland Indians minor league system. This past season, he batted .291 with 17 home runs and 64 RBIs with the AAA Columbus Clippers.

Krizan was drafted by the Tigers in the 8th Round of the 2011 MLB Draft. The 28-year-old outfielder has yet to make his Major League debut.

Wilson was selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2nd Round of the 2008 MLB Draft. In 10 minor league seasons, he has batted .241 with 28 home runs and 282 RBIs. In 2017, the 27-year-old outfielder batted .240 with 3 home runs and 26 RBIs.
