Detroit Tigers make quartet of roster moves

We are smack dab in the middle of the 2019 World Series, something the Detroit Tigers did not come close to sniffing this year as they finished dead-last in baseball with a 47-114 record.

Yet, the Tigers are in the news (in a minor way) on this October morning as they have reportedly sent four players to Triple-A.

From MLB Trade Rumors:

  • Four players in the Tigers org were outrighted to the roster of the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens, according to the International League transactions page. The new Hens, lefty Nick Ramirez, righty Eduardo Jimenez, righty Zac Reininger, and outfielder Dustin Peterson, are not exactly household names, but Ramirez did make 46 largely serviceable long-relief appearances (4.08 ERA in 79.2 innings) for Detroit in 2019, and Peterson was a top-30 prospect with the Braves as recently as 2018. Reininger, meanwhile, has struggled in parts of three Detroit seasons (8.08 ERA/7.44 FIP in 59 career MLB innings), while Jimenez was only slightly better for the Tigers in his 2019 rookie debut (5.91 ERA/4.34 FIP in 10.2 innings).

Who says the Tigers can’t make the news in October?!?!
