Tigers' Matt Murton: Lands with Detroit on minor league pact
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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 | RotoWire

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.
