    • Murton agreed to a minor league contract with the Tigers on Monday. The 35-year-old journeyman spent time playing in Japan from 2010 through 2015, but as a member of the Cubs organization last season, he pieced together a .314/.349/.398 slash line in 76 games with their Triple-A affiliate. The Tigers outfield is pretty crowded as things stand now, so Murton will likely have to settle for an organizational depth role unless injuries plague Detroit's outfielders.

    • Cubs' Matt Murton: Two RBI since returning from DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Murton is 3-for-12 with a run and two RBI since returning from the disabled list Saturday. Murton was dealing with an oblique strain since May 5, but he was able to return to the lineup after a bit over two weeks on the disabled list. Now that he's healthy, the 34-year-old should continue acting as one of the main outfielders with Triple-A Iowa going forward.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Murton was placed on the disabled list with an oblique strain, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. Murton was plagued by appendicitis earlier this year, and it appears his luck hasn't gotten any better. Strained obliques are notorious for taking a good amount of time to rehab, so he could be on the shelf for a while. A better timetable for his return should come forth once he gets further in his rehab process.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Murton (appendix) made his spring debut Friday, going 0-for-2 and playing left field. Murton's appendix was removed at the beginning of March, and while it's nice to see him back on the field, he's an extreme long shot to make the team.
