Tigers pick up right-hander Miner traded from Royals

CBSSports.com wire reports

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers have acquired right-hander Zach Miner from the Kansas City Royals for cash. He will report to Double-A Erie this weekend.

The Tigers announced the move Friday.

Miner, who turned 30 last month, appeared in 157 games for the Tigers from 2006-09, including 35 starts. He went 25-20 with a 4.24 ERA over that span, but hasn't pitched in the majors since.

He had surgery on his right elbow in May 2010 and signed a minor-league deal with the Royals before last season.
