Just moments ago, Jeimer Candelario took to Twitter to thank the Tigers organization, his teammates, and the fans.
“I just want to thank the Tigers organization, teammates and fans! I will always fondly remember my 5 years there and how great I was treated. I took pride in putting on that uniform and always tried my best. My family and I want to thank everyone!”
Best of luck, Jeimer!!!
