Wilson has elected to become a free agent. Wilson bounced around between Triple-A and the majors this season, but he still managed to appear in 21 games with the Tigers this year. The 34-year-old actually posted a career high in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage, slashing a surprising .316/.350/.395 in his limited amount of opportunities this season. That being said, he's mainly served as organizational depth for the last four years of his career and he will likely continue to stay in that role if he is signed by another club.
The Tigers recalled pitcher Ian Krol , infielder Jefry Marte and outfielder Steven Moya from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, the team announced. Detroit also purchased the contract of infielder Josh Wilson from Toledo.
The Tigers designated infielder Josh Wilson for assignment on Tuesday, the team announced. The move was made to make room for Marc Krauss. Wilson hit .381 in 21 at-bats this season.
The Tigers pounded out 18 hits on Saturday, and four of them belonged to infielder Josh Wilson. Wilson was making his first start of the season for the Tigers after being recalled on Tuesday. The result was his second-career four-hit game. All four hits were singles for Wilson, who also drove in and scored a run as the Tigers grabbed the 7-1 victory over the White Sox.
Tigers third baseman Josh Wilson drove in two of Detroit's three runs in Friday's loss to the White Sox. Wilson went 1 for 4 and earned his first two RBI of the year. "Any time you get some hits and production from the bottom of the order, you know your team is probably going to do well," Wilson said. "If I can continue to just have good at-bats, we have some pretty good hitters at the bottom of the lineup."
