  1. Avisail Garcia, who started the season on the DL due to a heel bruise, has been cleared to resume baseball activities.Detroit Tigers' Avisail Garcia cleared to begin baseball activities after suffering 'significant' heel bruise | MLive.com
  2. With the #14 pick, I select: Avisail Garcia, OF Bats: Right Throws: Right Height: 6'4" Weight: 240 lbs. Born: June 12, 1991 2012 Stats: Detroit - 23 G | 47 AB | 15 H | 0 2B | 0 3B | 0 HR | 3 RBI | 0 SB | .319 BA | .373 OBP | .319 SLG | .692 OPS Erie - 55 G | 215 AB | 67 H | 9 2B | 3 3B | 6 HR | 22 RBI | 9 SB | .312 BA | .345 OBP | .465 SLG | .810 OPS Lakeland - 67 G | 266 AB | 77 H | 8 2B | 5 3B | 8 HR | 36 RBI | 14 SB | .289 BA | .324 OBP | .447 SLG | .771 OPS
  3. Raburn's made a pretty decent career thus far given his limited defensive abilities. I imagine someone will pick him up and give him a shot.
  4. Pretty funny story about his call up this past September with the Blue Jays. He actually pitched a game for Canada in the WBC Qualifier held in Germany, flew home to Canada for a wedding, and found out at the wedding he was getting called up. Because he anticipated flying back to Germany for the tourney finale, all his gear was still over there when he got the call up and he had to borrow a glove and spikes.

  5. A decision will have to be made about Valverde. If Leyland determines he can't be trusted and can't use him, rather than have a dead roster spot they could activate Villarreal or Downs.
  6. I agree that he might be tipping his pitches, because hitters seem to be sitting on that changeup. And he hasn't lost his ability in other areas since he put up the 2nd highest K/9 of his career and his walk rate is just marginally higher than last year.
  7. He could've been great if he had picked just one sport and focused all his time and energy into it. He was never fully committed to either baseball or football.
  8. Why would a team send a guy like Putkonen to the AFL? He's already got a bit of big league experience and looks to be a fringe reliever at best, the 11th or 12th man on a staff.
  9. He's got a $10 M option for 2013 that vests if he finishes 45 games, plus a $3M buyout. He's already finished 29, so assuming they use him as a setup guy, that's a $3M buyout for a couple months rental.
  10. Dean Palmer played with the Tigers during Garner's tenure, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was him just due to his links with the Texas teams of the early to mid 90's. He played with a few guys who were suspected (or implicated) steroid users - Pudge, Gonzalez, Palmeiro, Canseco.
  11. Eldred was DFA'd to make room for Young being activated from suspension.
  12. Hate to see his career end like this. Maybe he'll rehab and come back next year just so he can go out on his own terms.
  13. Schlereth has been awful this year, so the move was expected sooner rather than later. Let's see what Weber can do.
