Jefry Marte (dfa'd a few days ago) traded to Angels for 2b Kody Eaves (L), turns 23 in July. Angels No. 16 pick in 2012, reached hi-A last year: 11hr, 21sb, .694ops.

Detroit Tigers have signed RHP Willy Paredes (Laredo American ***.) and SS Leonardo Laffita 24 yr old Cuban shortstop signed for 250,000 and it goes toward their International bonus pool.

According to Baseball America, Tigers signed SS Casey Frawley. Played in the Atlantic League last season with Southern Maryland. Don't know anything else about him.

I was thinking that the Tigers had acquired a whole lot more players this off-season than usual, and therefore had a lot more under contract than in previous years, but when I did the research here's what I found:

Players acquired: 42

Players departed: 37

So they're only +5......a lot less than I thought.

(Of course this data is guaranteed correct as I've never been wrong about anything.)

Baseball America show the Tigers signing former 2002 draft pick C Luke Carlin (was in Cubs organization last year, Iowa PCL) age 35.

Carlin was released after the "scandal" with Randy Ready wife and a skit ....three players were cut ....another fiasco from that period !

The 3 players released on March 28 '03 after the skit (it was part of a hazing where first-timers in ST had to perform) were Carlin (#10 '02) and lefties Jesse Carlson (#15 '02) and Everett Hancock (#28 '02). Hancock disappeared, but Carlin was signed 3 days later by the Astros and Carlson 1 month later by the Padres (he went on to have a couple of good MLB seasons). I was told that what got them released was a pretty raunchy routine making fun of one of the secretaries in the front office.

Pat Mackenzie has hung 'em up (along with Michael Thomas and Matt Davenport, that makes 3 off-season retirements).

Former Mets righty reliever Bobby Parnell signed to milb contract, with an invite. Two lost seasons following TJ in 2014. Now 31. Lightning in a bottle????

More veteran depth: milb contract for Casey McGehee, 3b/1b, age 33. Cubs #10 pick in '03. Tigers will be his 7th MLB team (either he's really popular or really unpopular). I assume he gets an invite, which would make 19 nri's plus the 40-man for a grand total of 59 in camp.

Looks like they signed Lucas Harrell: today's Game Notes lists him as one of the minor-leaguers joining the Tigers for today's game. Turns 31 in June, Chisox #4 pick in '04. Regular rotation starter for Astros in '12 and '13. Fell off the map in '14 (injury?), pitched in Korea last year.

Correction: he didn't fall off the map in '14...20 starts in AAA, 3 for the Astros.

Tigers announced signing of RHP Yordy Cabrera, former 2nd rounder, 60th overall of the Athletics ....Basilio Cabrera's son ...now 25 and trying pitching !

I remember him being highly touted coming out of high school. I always felt that at some point he would be a Tiger.

Has he been injured?  Not any real activity since 2013 that I see.

Aaron Sayers ?  Well , the Far East experiments have certainly not borne much fruit ....can't remember a single success from Aussie , Japanese or otherwise !
